11.60.10 Cock fighting, dog fighting, fox hunting, bear bating
I forbid cock fighting, bear bating and dog fighting. Local communities should castigate those that organise such events, and where possible prosecute the ring leaders in competent courts.
I will tolerate the ritual killing of an animal in the name of sport as long as -
(1) The animal is vermin, a danger to others, or is going to be used for food or clothing.
(2) The animal is not part of an endangered species.
(3) The animal does not suffer unnecessary pain.
(4) Such silly sports remain quarantined on planet Earth.
If a bunch of people dressed up in brightly coloured clothes, funny hats and while blowing horns wish to chase a fox on horseback - let them do so. But they should make sure a device is fitted that instantly kills the fox seconds before the dogs tear it apart. Perhaps someone can invent such a device for use by the aforementioned twits (that cannot accidentally hurt children). In fact I've changed my mind halfway through compiling this book. Ban the sport altogether. It's dumb.
Future generations in the not too distant future will come to the conclusion that inflicting pain on a bull in the name of sport is the equivalent of what this generation thinks of cruel Roman gladiatorial fights. Earth's future children wherever they live in the Universe will look back and scratch their heads in wonder at these "ancient" bloodthirsty rituals in the name of fun.
