Dawg vs. Hawg—Who Wins? The Antis
This is not a reference to an SEC football game, but there’s probably just as much alcohol involved. Several men in south Florida were busted on a Seminole Indian reservation for setting up fights between wild boars and dogs. The bouts lasted 60 seonds and were held in small pens between pit bull terriers or bulldogs and a wild pig.
According to a Humane Society spokesman, this "blood sport" has been going on for at least 25 years. In response to the arrests, the owner of the operation told the AP that she believed the cops were acting at the behest of animal rights activists.
So I got to thinking, when it comes to hunting I'll steer clear of bear-hugging antis like they were a radiation leak. As for food issues, such as demanding corporate farms to raise chickens in decent conditions (read: not in cages where they can't spread their wings), I can understand the Humane Society's argument. What do you think? Is there common ground for animal rights organizations and hunters?
