Animal fights for entertainment are a result of an indulgence in bloodlust by human beings who exploit this 'animalistic' instinct towards violence (or is it survival?) through fear, coercion and inordinate torture.

At about 18 months of age, healthy young bulls are inducted into dairy slavery. In a single holding stall of a bovine frozen semen factory, 40 to 60 bulls at a minimum, across species and breeds are tethered tightly, with barely two or three feet of space separating one bull from another.
