A coming autumn will bring a season of dog fighting together with cold weather. What is your attitude to the show? Do you think it is a real must for dogs or just another entertainment for sadists? Specialists believe dog fights are not only related to gambles but can also test combativity of an animal.

It is necessary to differentiate between two kinds of fights. Some fights where people are ready to back several thousand dollars against the field are intended for entertainment. These fights are always ended with killing of one of the dog as this is the only chance to get the prize.

But an official dog fight championship held in Almaty is quite a different thing. It has been taking place for 6 years already. No bets are needed here. Wolfhounds are given a chance to be trained to withstand such a cruel and cunning animal as wolf. Due to absence of wolves other wolfhounds are invited to participate in the fight.

  1. It started as a blood sport.
    It will always be a blood sport.
    Only aboriginal minds can take pleasure in this repugnant “sport”.

    • There is plenty of reason in the world that western culture should be changed, if that happens what would you do as a westerner?
      Culture should stay localized to prevent misunderstanding and discrimination.

      • Why bring up Western Culture? All the cultures of the world are evolving. Always have always will. The point I’m trying to make is that I hope people can keep the best things about themselves and lose the bad things. And as for your statement “Culture should stay localized to prevent misunderstanding and discrimination.” Everyone has their cross to bear. I’d rather see theses dogs not having to fight for their lives. I guess a few offended Kazakhs is a price I’d be willing to pay.

  2. Sick. It says a lot about the people. Anybody that fights dogs, is a coward that simply enjoys seeing acts of destruction. In this case, using a dog to do their dirty work.

    If they love fighting so much, why are THEY not in there fighting with knives and such?

    Pathetic people. And this has nothing to do with culture or country. The same thing goes on here in the states, and it’s just as bad, pathetic people, drug dealers etc, trying to be the “tough guy”, when actually they’re hiding behind a dog.

  3. Here in the U.S. we are fighting hard against such inhumane acts. Dog fighting is cruel. It is wrong. Any who engage in such acts deserve to be punished by the full extent of the law.

  4. Absolutely sick and disgusting! A special place in hell is reserved for these people! The Russian government should be combating this cruelty.

  5. Can people not read? This isn’t Russia. The post says that this is 15km outside of Almaty City which if you don’t know, or just are to lazy to use Google is in Kazakhstan, which is not Russia.

  6. A specific kind of “local” population organizing similar type of ilegal dog fights using pitbulls often gets raided , sentenced & jailed in the US.

    • In the US it is Illeagal and kept underground. If you participate and get caught you go to jail. In Almaty it looks like normal acceptable behavior. How is it in Russia?

  7. @Yerk,
    Technically they do fight them to the extent of what they can do.
    Read the post again, They fight until one cannot fight anymore. Then they separate them.
    Besides, you people act like animals have never fought before.
    Its called nature?

  8. nature yes all dogs over the years have degenerated over the years by this i mean they no longer have the instinct to work in them like bulldogs bullterriers ect were as these people are just trying to keep there dogs up to date an not going down the lines of us westerners.

  9. peaple these days are so stupid the world wouldent b what it is today if it werent for u moaning people if u dont like it dont watch it simple the only 1 thing i dont like is wen its to the death that happens only wen money is envolved or wen some1 thinks ther better than the other person other than that i think that the sport is a great way to releive a lot of stress for u aswell as the dog.
