Chinese Bull Fighting

After watching the Wall Street Journal video below I was struck by the similar justification of animal cruelty in rural Chinese bull fighting as in urban-American dog fighting.

The language is the same:

“…member of our own family.”

“…a product of…culture.”

“We have deep feelings towards the bulls.”

“We love our bulls, just as we love our families…”

The “care” is the same too: Washing the animals. Feeding the animals. A bit of backyard medicine.

The key to the continuation of these cruelties is a child. Watch the video a second time and take note of the young children being subjected to this “cultural education” in he fields and the city through recorded fights. Is it any surprise that animal cruelty gains a foothold in generation after generation?
