Problem

Bear-baiting

Nature:

Bears are dragged into bloody arenas to face pairs of cross-bred bull terriers. Their teeth have been ripped out and their claws blunted, so they are at the mercy of the dogs' vicious teeth.

Incidence:

It was reported in 1997 that over 2,000 bear-baitings took place each year in Pakistan, despite the fact that they were banned by law.
