Our first video film compares the’sport’ of dog fighting and the’sport’ of fox hunting. They share the same principle of training dogs to be aggressive to another animal and attack it as a recreational activity. There is little to distinguish watching dogs attack dogs for a dog fighting sport or dogs attack another wild animal for a fox hunting sport. The only difference is the attire , red jackets or street gear. They share the same desire to watch an animal being set upon by a dog or dogs. Drag hunting removes the wild animal from the sport and is acceptable and the thrill of the chase is retained.
