Devastating footage on social media shows crowds cheering as an exhausted boar runs for his life. His screams of pain and fear can be heard as he is set upon by a pack of baying dogs... trained to kill.
The footage has sparked outrage in Vietnam, but these organised ‘death battles’ - between dogs and boars fleeing for their lives are nothing new in Vietnam. One crowd member even commented, “We will continue doing it because it isn’t illegal.”
And boar aren’t the only victims of this vicious blood sport…
Dogs used as killing-machines are treated as nothing more than sporting equipment. Often chained, mutilated, and treated cruelly to make them more aggressive.
Two years ago, the Vietnamese government passed its first Animal Health Law. Yet, there are currently no laws to protect animals from harm, or punish animal abusers.
When barbaric cruelty like these sick organised dog fights can go unpunished, and leave authorities powerless to act, urgent changes are needed...
Please, join us in calling on the Vietnam Government to update the law to include animal protection regulations, and strong punishments for those who commit acts of violence against animals.
Act now, call for urgent animal welfare laws in Vietnam. Please, sign the petition now...
