  1. Good article. The author has put together the problem animals. I think these entertainment people are found not only in Indonesia. The creation of such fights – it’s disgusting!
    If there is a God, why he made ​​this world so? This world of eternal struggle for survival. Millions of bacteria and microorganisms every day trying to destroy your body, and every day he is obliged to resist using the immune system. If he does not come out a winner – he will die.
    Life here is built on war.

  2. Thank you, my friend, for speaking on behalf of animals.

    In developing nations animals have no rights. My wife witnessed beheading of dogs in the Philippines.. people are so poor that dog meat is highly valued there. In parts of Asia, cats and dogs are skinned alive and boiled much like lobsters.

    Here in America pets are loved, but cows, pigs, sheep, chickens are still treated inhumanely in factory farms. I prefer a “meat free” diet for this reason.

    Recently immigrants are committing cruel acts against animals here in the U.S. Some Mexicans tortured and killed a beloved wild horse in California not long ago. In their culture animals have no rights.

    In Arizona dogs and cats are stolen to be used as bait in bloody training exercises for dog fighting. Pet lovers must always watch their pets.

    Supposedly some Muslim immigrants here in America have been confiscating dogs while walking in parks. But I have read that the prophet Muhammad forbade his followers to harm any animal and asked them to respect the rights of animals.

    Latin Americans have brought cock fighting to America. That is a sick sport. Roosters rage into a bloody melee to the death. Small children watch with their parents. Kids are indoctrinated into this form of violence.. they find animal cruelty to be a ‘normal’ aspect of life.

    More than two million immigrants arrive annually to America. I believe that all people have a right to a free happy life, but America’s love for pets should be respected in my opinion. Thanks for the article, Kidotov.

  3. Very nice article, Kido. I like the precision and the link to videos that prove what you say. I could never have imagined of horse-fights, for example. What I find really disturbing is not the cruelty on the animals by itself (which is still a horrible thing) but the fact that so many people actually enjoy seeing those sort of things! When they go back home, how will they behave with their fellow human beings? Their friends? Their families? I am sure there is a higher chance they become violent criminals… with a high cost for the whole society. 😦
