Bear Fighting Essay

1764 words - 7 pages

Bear Fighting [1] In a typical bear fighting event there are twenty five fights. In
each fight, no matter which of the four provinces the event takes
place, the rules are the same. A bear is tethered to a central pole by
a rope. The length of the rope can vary from two to five metres. Two
bull terriers are set onto the tethered bear. The dogs try to make the
bear roll over. To make the bear roll over, the dogs target the
muzzle, tongue, chin and ears. These parts of the body are the most
sensitive. If a dog does manage to attach his body to one of the
sensitive parts, he can then proceed to pull the bear down and force
it to roll over. The fight ends when either the bear or one of the
dogs falls over. The animal that falls to the ground first, loses. At
any time in the fight, the dogs' owners may pull the bear out of the
fight, if the owner thinks the dog has suffered enough. If this occurs
the bear wins the fight. However the bear must continue with the match
until the end.

WSPA is the 'World Society for the Protection of Animals'. WSPA is
deeply involved in motivating governments all over Europe to put more
money into helping to stop Bear Baiting.

[2]If the Pakistani authorities set up a permanent officer in their
Wildlife Department, WSPA will set up a facility to house confiscated
bears for life. [3] Some people argue that this is still far from
ideal for the bears to be living in captivity and certainly not an
enjoyable experience for the bears. WSPA say this is ridiculous and
that 'all bears that are confiscated will have a much more pleasurable
life than if they were bear baiting.' Living in a WSPA captivity camp
would be similar to living in the wild. All bears would have access to
a large open outside area during the day and would sleep inside.

[4]Once the Pakistani authorities teach legal, moral and ethnic
arguments on bear baiting and make it part of the school curriculum,
WSPA will produce public awareness posters and other materials such as
leaflets. Many Pakistanis believe that educating children about bear
baiting is unfair. They argue children are to young to learn about
bear baiting and their decisions will be made for them. If children do
not get taught both sides of bear baiting at a relatively young age,
when are they going to learn? The children are not going to have their
decisions made for them, they are simply being informed on bear
baiting. It would not be necessary to teach at girl's schools, only at
boy's schools as the audience of a bear baiting event is solely male.

If the Pakistani government set up a bear registration scheme to
monitor and stop further depletion of wild bears, then WSPA will
employ assistance to the Pakistani government.
