Vietnam: animal cruelty as a tradition

Animal welfare groups, the media and the public are shocked by animal cruel videos shot in the capital Hanoi.

A pack of hunting dogs mangles and kills a single boar – as a “highlight” of a club event.

The fight was organized by a group of Argentine mastiff enthusiasts in an empty field in the southwest of Hanoi. The video shows a single boar released from a cage and a pack of mastiffs mauling the animal, cheered on by their owners and watchers. As the boar’s squeals eventually subside, all that is left is a bloody mess.

The recording was made on March 18, 2018 in the suburb of Hanoi. Millions have seen it on Facebook – and damn. The graphic footage has invoked wrath and revulsion from viewers on social media. Vu Ngoc Thanh, an animal expert, said the event was “barbaric and uncivilized.”

 

“Where is the humanity in this?” he said.

 

 

But despite the general anger over this bloodthirsty event, the organizers remain stubborn.
One of the participating young men told the media:
“We do not stop because it’s not illegal – we just do not want it on social networks anymore.”

However, the brazen comments on the participants ignore the attitude of the authorities, which have pledged to crack down on it.

 

 

Animal welfare has become increasingly important in Vietnam’s public debate in recent years.

 

Animals Asia released a cruel Spring Festival in which a pig had been chopped in half. The condemnation by the public and their demand to suppress such practices resulted in the prohibition of numerous barbarous festivals.

 

In Germany, there are also atrocities against wild boars, which are crushed by hunting dogs.

Not at festivals, but in the hunt for blood orgies in the woods.

But where cruelty happens in the name of tradition, we will never be tired of publishing it.

No matter where it happens.

We no longer leave this brutal, morbid and irrational custom to a small group of this society that wants to savor its sadism and crime under the guise of tradition.
We act, now and everywhere.
