*Warning* this video contains very upsetting and graphic scenes of unnecessary animal abuse and cruelty and should be viewed with caution, viewer discretion is strongly advised.This is a sad and shocking video produced by WSPA (World Society for the Protection of Animals) exposing the disgusting, savage, and very cruel practice of bear baiting.Bear baiting involves pitting an innocent bear (which has cruelly had it's teeth and claws removed) tying it to a post and pitting it against a frenzied onslaught by two dogs (pit bull terriers) where the innocent and helpless bear has to try and fend them off and fight for its survival.Bears in this savage blood sport suffer horrible abuse, such as ripped noses, mouths and permanent scarring; after the event is finished, both the bear and the dogs are spared as they are too valuable and will be used for future illegal bear baiting events.Bear baiting occurs in Pakistan and is illegal in that country, but it still goes in remote regions and awareness of it must continue so if people see illegal bear baiting events they can report them to the authorities and prevent and stop them from going ahead and happening.As you can see from this video, it's absolutely disgusting and unforgivable and such savage and horrible animal cruelty can't be justified out of tradition culture or entertainment.WSPA prevented and shout down over 50 illegal bear baiting events in 2005 / 2006 and with the commitment of the Pakistani government will hopefully and likely shut down many more.Please support WSPA's vital field campaign and political advocacy work to help remove this scourge from Pakistan.This video was uploaded in conjunction with WSPA (World Society for the Protection of Animals)Thank You
