India, thankfully, is leading the way out of animal subjugation and torture. It has recently implemented a ban on all animal testing. Perhaps they will continue leading the rest of the world by outlawing this atrocity and also bear baiting, a heinous practice carried out by villagers where a declawed, detoothed bear is tethered to a stake while dogs are sicced on it to tear it to pieces. This is a form of income for evil and lazy villagers and people pay to see it. Join WSPA, if you can, an organization that finds these monsters and buys them out, confiscating their bears and giving them a small shop to set up with the understanding that they never bear bait again or the shop will be taken away from them. It's the only way out of poverty for some, and although it may gall you to give money to someone who would do that, if, over time, all of them are bought out, and there aren't that many left, soon the practice will fall into the dark annals of our horrific history. Slowly, slowly, we are coming out of our shameful past. But only because of people like you, who care and DO something to change things. Thanks to you all :)

What type of lunatic finds pleasure in torturing animals.
Does it give them a 'false' sense of superiority?
This is very SICK behavior.

Most of us realize, that people abusers started their life of crime, as animal abusers.
