Fighting Animals

Animals in Entertainment, Sport, and Work

SPCA opposes animal fighting ventures.

The infliction of pain, distress, fear and/or suffering on any animal for the entertainment or status of people is unacceptable. It is an offence under the Animal Welfare Act 1999 to knowingly own, possess, keep, train, or breed an animal for the purposes of having that animal participate in an animal fighting venture. Activities in which animals are induced or trained to fight other animals or humans are intolerable and must not be permitted in society.
