Dog fighting is an underground blood sport that has caused a lot of controversy and criticism for the past few years. What generally happens is that there are two game dogs that are put in a ring or a pit to fight with each other. A winner is declared when the opponent would die, fails to scratch, or jumps out of the pit. If the loser dog doesn’t die in the fight, it is typically put down by its owner by shooting, torture or beatings.
