Dog fighting is legal in Japan. Posted on February 6, 2023 by Anonymous Dog fighting is legal in Japan.
Yeah well no surprise there. There’s a whole bunch of morons in china that love to torture dogs before they eat them.
Why don't they use pitbulls?
A pitbull would lose instantly by breaking the rules and drawing blood.
japanese people hate animals
I'd like dogfighting if it was a pittie vs that 6 yr old hoo shot his teacher, no weapons deathmatch. To hell with fucking dumbass kids.
Not even Fuck You, but God Damn You, and To Hell With You.
The relationship is strange, because Buddhism is still a bigger thing than Shintoism, they both equate nature and it's flora & fauna as closer to man than the abrahamic faiths, Japan isn't as religious as say some parts of India, it's there, but there's still a sort of conflict:
They don't hate animals, they probably have a better relationship with, but they also still have to take from and sometimes be unpleasant toward animals.
With Shintoism, the reverence is there not because "They're people too" but because they are the literal spirits of nature itself. They're extra-human. Simpler & greater than man. The way this turns out is kinda like if Americans had industrialized upon contact with European immigration.
They have all these creature centric places like the rabbit island, the fox village, the cat island, that deer town, et cetera, but they still hold onto the other part of the culture that sees them killing whales and dolphins (even if they appreciate them)... Maybe even continuing to practice horse fighting, where they bring two stallions together, flaunt a mare in heat between them, then watch them go at it a lot more violently than (Tosa specific) dogfighting.
They retain a mildly neurotic and dissonant relation with animals. It's like halfway between India and the rest of us.
here's a train conductor by the way.
Fun fact, Norway hunts more whales than Japan despite having only a small fraction of the population. Most Japanese people don't ear whale meat nor have any interest in doing so and yet Japan is the one who gets the bad press. In fact people even doubt that they hunt whales in Norway at all because "Norway is so civilized" showing that the colonial mentality of civilized white people and barbarians non-whites still is around.
Japan hunts whales but also dolphins, and they are seen as more civilized so there is more expected of them - and their hunting methods regarding dolphins are messy. Very messy.
You have a vegan (delusional, amoral and irrational) idea of civilized that entangles with racist bullshit because you are a mildly schizophrenic retard AKA an american.
Lol, not american. Maybe you are the mildly schizophrenic retard who sees americans on that kind of comment when americans are the ones moralfagging about Japan without knowing what they are talking about
it's not the same kind of dog fighting that was practiced in western countries
I'm actually curious. Are there rules of chivalry in Japanese dog fighting?
So far as I remember when I looked into this, yes.
According the supposedly history of the breed and the way it's expected to act, they're not even supposed to bark. They are to Wrestle their target to the ground and not bite or draw blood. They're supposed to act exactly as sumo wrestlers.
Whether or not this was ever the reality of Tosa fights or if it is still adhered to, I can't say with full confidence.
Dog fighting evolved in Kōchi to a form that is called tōken (闘犬). Under modern rules, dogs fight in a fenced ring until one of the dogs barks, yelps, or loses the will to fight. Owners are allowed to admit defeat, and matches are stopped if a doctor judges that it is too dangerous. Draws usually occur when both dogs will not fight or both dogs fight until the time limit. There are various other rules, including one that specifies that a dog will lose if it attempts to copulate. Champion dogs are called yokozuna, as in sumo. Dog fighting is not banned at a nationwide level, but the prefectures of Tokyo, Kanagawa, Fukui, Ishikawa, Toyama and Hokkaidō all ban the practice. Currently, most fighting dogs in Japan are of the Tosa breed, which is native to Kōchi.
I can't imagine Japan letting people have dangerous breeds as house pets. The moment a kid gets mauled they'd ban them all right away.
Of course! The Japanese are so honorable and wonderful, much better than all gaijin.
If you had a minimal actual knowledge about Japan you would know how they overreact over any incident. A doomsday cult did a terrorist attack putting gas bombs in trash cans during subway rush hour in 1995 killing 13 people. All trash cans were removed from the streets and still didn't made a return over 25 years later. Can you imagine changing the infrastructure and daily habits of an entire country over an attack that killed 13 people in one city? In a single year more than twice people were killed due to fights over sports in my country. In the university I did an exchange program someone tried to enter the female toilet with a camera once, as response they installed alarms (sort of like fire alarms) in very female toilet of the 180 hectare campus. A single incident led to a major action because it is not enough to handle the incident but also do what is possible to prevent future incidents and they often go to absurd levels of caution to the point that foreigners feel like those events are extremely common to result in such reaction when in reality all it took was a single incident to create large scale permanent changes.
The realities of city living, Japan being one of the most densely urbanized countries in the world, maybe the most if we're talking percentage of population and not just land mass, means that dangerous dogs are infrequent. Last I checked, the top 10 breeds in Japan are all small dogs and toy breeds. Biggest one is a Shiba Inu. Given the fact that dog fighting is only legal in the most backwoods prefectures means that you are unlikely to even encounter a Tosa. Unlike here in the states, you don't have a bunch of deranged Tosa mommies trying to rehab the breed so dog fighters are still the most typical owner. These guys know better than to take them to the dog park.
Allegedly, the breed most implicated in bites is actually the Akita. Luckily for the Japs, Akitas don't rend and tear when they bite so fatalities are rare.
They also have a ref in the ring and vets at standby, see the videos in
i wanna watch two ferocious animals fighting to the death
Japanese dog fighting isn't as violent as the western kind
>he hasn't been to an underground hardcore match
I saw a rottweiler get powerbombed into thumbtacks by a sumo akita.
Yeah, the tosa fights at least look like your average playfights at the dog park. Kind of neat. Like a wrestling or sumo match but with dogs.
Um I dunno about you but it looks like those dogs are literally tearing each other apart
They're not even biting each other most of the time, and the bites are used to pin each other down, not puncture flesh. Try to pay closer attention.
pretty much everything animal related is legal in japan
Yeah, they can do that too!
