But it seems the more you pamper your pet, the more they start to take on some very human-like characteristics, as these hilarious Snapchats prove.

After Horses fighting to death for Muslim entertainment in the Philippines. Now Bear Bating in Pakistan. The rules are simple: a pair of trained fighting dogs are unleashed on a tethered bear whose claws and sharpest teeth have been removed

Posted in animals with tags , , , , , , , , , on May 8, 2017 by theboldcorsicanflame

A bear attempts to fend off attacks from specially trained dogs at a bear baiting event.

Although the bear baiting was banned in Pakistan in 1980 by the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, it continues to prevail in deeply rural tribal regions. Landlords are extremely powerful figures in certain areas of rural Pakistan. They are the main actors behind these fights, which they organise for several reasons. Firstly, the events are intended to draw large crowds – and therefore more money – to village fairs in the landlord’s territory. But mainly, the landlords want to prove they are above the law: defying the government ban against bear baiting is a way of flexing their political muscles.

Dog owners pull the dogs off the bear after several minutes of fighting. Although the bears are often injured, they are too valuable to their gypsie owners – who use them over multiple fights – to be killed.

Animal protection groups like the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) have worked with Pakistani authorities to try to eradicate the practice. According to the WSPA, education campaigns and crackdowns on bear-baiting events have helped stop 80% of planned bear baiting events since 2001, and led to the successful rescue of 40 bears. Nevertheless, the group estimates there are some 70 bears still being made to fight in Pakistan.

The Kund Bear Sanctuary was set up in 2000 near the northern Pakistani city of Peshawar to provide a safe haven for baited bears that were confiscated from their owners.

For all the people wondering. This dog and bear are both alive. This bear was by a dog sanctuary located 15kms out of town. There is over 50 dogs out there.

They are tied up so they cant run all over the land. These are the last dogs of there bred and are being looked after by brian ladoon in Churchill Manitoba.

Dont let media fool you. Manitoba conservation has also checked this area alot. And have never said its animal cruelty. These dogs are very happy. You can even pet them. Brian goes out and feeds the dogs everyday. He is very passionate about what he does.

 

Their Masters’ Voices: Dogs Understand Tone And Meaning Of Words

What did she say?

When you praise a dog, it’s listening not just to the words you say but also how you say them.

That might not be huge news to dog owners. But now scientists have explored this phenomenon by using an imaging machine to peek inside the brains of 13 dogs as they listened to their trainer’s voice.

The reward pathway in the dogs’ brains lit up when they heard both praising words and an approving intonation — but not when they heard random words spoken in a praising tone or praise words spoken in a flat tone, according to a report in the journal Science.

“Dogs process both what we say and how we say it in a way which is amazingly similar to how human brains do,” says Attila Andics, a neuroscientist at Eötvös Loránd University in Hungary.

George and his duck are now the best of friends. (Picture: Facebook/Jacquie Litton)

Two years ago, George the dog lost his best friend, a labrador named Blackie.

They’d been best friends for twelve years. They played together, lived together, and loved each other.

When Blackie died, George’s owner, Jacquie Litton, said that George was overcome with grief. He fell into a serious sad spell, refusing to play or run around the way he used to.

But then a few weeks ago, a duck showed up. And everything changed.
