BBC NEWS | UK | Inside the world of dog-fighting
We should set the dogs on the asains who get there kicks out of such sicking, cold and heartless acts of cowardice..
there have been cases in the birmingham area of this happening, almost all asian or some other foreign minority. makes me sick, when someone let my rabbits out a few weeks back my first thought was that they had taken her as a bait animal for fighting, thankfully that wasnt the case.
i know someone who found a pit bull, really badly scard and still bleeding from wounds on its back legs and down one side and had to take it to an animal hospital where it was more then likely PTS. its absolutly horrible. there are some real sickos about!!!
How distrurbing....dog fighting up by 400% in the last 3 years.........and 98% of dog fighting is in the Asian community.......
I would seriously question the reliablility of those figures.
The figures are from the link at the top......from BBC News.......
Actually they are from Ian Briggs, chief inspector of the RSPCA's Special Operations Unit, and I would still seriously question the reliability of the figures.
What are they based upon? We are not told. We are simply left to assume that the RSPCA have detailed knowledge about the activities of groups that they admit they cannot penetrate.
I agree - dog fighting has been going on underground for many years and not just in the Asian community.
i live in the birmingham area and believe me its true, the majority of stories in the paper are asian and there are other crimes that have increased round here due to the ethnic minorities.
im not racist, i have friends that are asian etc but the crime rate is high and a lot of it is asian/chavs. there have been a lot of dig fighting raids all in asian areas.
it could just be that the asians are just not so good at hiding what they do i suppose
I think we need to be very careful of the tone of this thread.
I too am highly suspicious of the source and reliability of these figures.
All i can say is............DISGUSTING!..
I hope they rot!!
Being Th OP this was not meant to be a dig at any particular community, it was merely to bring the article to attention & discussion... as in the dog fighting scene is becoming more widespread.
Below is a recent article from my local press too
Three arrested in dog-fighting raids (From Bradford Telegraph and Argus)
I know I appreciate that, but just in case it got abit out of hand. Any articles highlighting this all to prevlent problem is good news but it does worry me how the media has rushed to publish this report and ignored all the subsequent ones on a similar subject but not so racially relevant.
people who think dog fighting is ok should die a horrid painful death, i think it is sick and there are so many dogs injured and die from it and there really is no need.
it is a topic that really makes my blood boil :cursing::cursing::cursing::cursing::cursing:
This goes on in all cultures not just with the Asian community.
Well 98 %, you cant agruee with those stats. I think punishments need to be much more harsh, and these douches need to be punished.
Its not an "asain" problem, but the articel highlights its more the Pakistani community. In Sikhi for exampe, everyone and animals are equal for example, i really really doubt its a problem in there community.
I agree, i think they should fed to the lions in the zoo
Can't argue with any statistic until we understand it. In this case we must ask 98% of what?
98% of the instances they attend to are because of asain people fighting the dogs, thats not racist. Just the situation. The world is PC mad.
You see what people in this thread dont realise, is that in countries such as Pakistan and Afghanistan is tradtion and widely acceptable, and ovbiously thats just been continued over here.
