    Yes, I know they don't feel it. It is gross to watch the cutting up of flesh, with blood everywhere, and flies all around. I was not a fan of the Saw movies, I don't enjoy watching gore. I don't know how more specific I can get.

    If you read the article is said they fight to the death or killed by the owner because they cannot afford vet care. Not sure why you would think this is ok?

    Because he does and it is his opinion. I doubt he is going to go and fight his own valuable livestock so there should really be no problem with his opinion.

    I think it is barbaric, ignorant, and sickening like all other animal mutilation sports such as dog and cock fighting, bull fighting, steer tripping and horse tripping, ect...

    I think it is a horrible thing to do to all the horses involved. As kevin mentioned though, it's not something we can do anything about. I wish there was something that could be done though. The worse thing is, all those kids out there watching and cheering is an assurance that it will go on for generations to come.

    Well, I think watching that kind of thing for entertainment is absolutely barbaric, the things people get a kick out of now a days really disturb me.

    I don't think it's right to pen up two stallions and provoke them to fight, however, I'm not to sure on the subject but I would think stallions exhibit similar behaviors on their own when a mare is in question, they have to establish who gets the female, like a lot of other animal species.

    I however, do not feel it right to provoke the behavior for sole entertainment, it is quite repulsive.

    This takes place in the Phillipines and has been going on for decades.

    Yes, it's been outlawed by the Phillipine government, but when has that ever stopped people from fighting animals and betting on the outcome?

    Every country has illegal animal fighting going on, so none of us have room to point fingers. Cock fighting and dog fighting are still very much a part of the seedy side of the U.S. Even though they've been outlawed.

    Heck, what about bullfighting and the running of the bulls in Spain? Both of those are still legal, although with the running of the bulls more people than bulls get hurt.

    Bullfighting is considered a 'tradition' with the Spaniards, and although I find it distasteful, it's a legal sport. Different countries have different ideals, and none of us are going to change that.

    The article wasn't what I would call impartial. Just because the article says something doesn't make it true. There was video of the horses fighting and I saw nothing that looked like the horses were seriously hurt. As I said before if the horses were being terribly injured then the video would show them. Groups that put out videos like this edit them to show the worst possible cases so what your seeing is the worst that happened while they were filming.

    Okay when they play the culture card it makes me super angry. So what if its their culture! It's wrong and it disgusts me these people enjoy watching horses beat the snot out of each other. It's like saying child abuse is okay because it's "part of the culture and who are we to judge". Culture or not it's wrong and needs to be stopped.

    And yup every race/region has their own bad side. I have no respect for anyone who enjoys the various animal fights taking place.

    Yes, I've heard of this and seen it before. This I don't think is natural because they do not behave like this in the wild. Humans make them hostile like that.

    That's not true! Horses act exactly like that when there is a mare in heat. I turned a stallion out with some mares and a gelding that had been with them jumped out of the corral before I could get him loaded in the trailer and that stallion chewed on him so bad he almost tried to jump back in the corral. I have never seen a horse so happy to run through a gate.
