Dog Fighting

Dog Fighting: Since Ancient Times Dog fighting has been part of the culture of many countries who enjoyed watching and gambling on various types of violent blood sports. This blood thirsty spectator sport dated back to the Romans whose Empire spread across Europe. The English Mastiff was taken from England to fight in the Roman arena's, such as the Colosseum, and forced to fight wild animals and even gladiators.

Dog fighting in many forms spread across the Roman Empire. During the 1500's the sport of Bull and Bear baiting was a major attraction across the British Isles. Any English dogs with the word 'Bull' in its name were originally used in Bull baiting. Dog fighting was another organized blood sport in which dogs were 'pitted' against each other in special arenas called dog pits.

The Staffordshire Bull Terrier was exported to the United States in 1817 and dog fighting became part of the American culture. Illegal dog fighting still takes place to the present day.
