Pig-dogging is an aggressive hunting method in which trained hunting dogs are pitted against wild boars. Proud enthusiasts of the sadistic blood sport often post online videos of the fights, which involve boars slowly being mauled to death by dogs. The dogs themselves sustain injuries, and some videos show hunters using staple guns to close their wounds.

An annual pig-dogging event called the Dog a Hog competition, held in Queensland, draws pig-doggers from all over Australia. The event has made the sport popular throughout the country, and many are addicted to the thrill of watching hunting dogs rip apart pigs. 

Pig-dogging is cruel to all animals involved in the fights. Australia has an overpopulation of wild boars, but there are many ways to control the animals other than brutal, slow killing. Please sign the petition to urge Australian legislators to ban pig-dogging.

Joseph Kony deserves to be arrested tomorrow. He\\\'s spent two decades committing horrific crimes against humanity. However, if he were to be arrested, would the children be safe? Not in the least. So, what can you do? 1. Only buy fair trade ...
