Bear Baiting is a cruel bloodsport in which pairs of dogs are set upon a tethered bear.

Although it has been declared illegal in Pakistan for quite some time now, it continues unpunished to this day.

Youtube Bear Baiting in Pakistan

Bear baiting is a practice where pairs of fighting dogs are allowed to attack a tethered bear n a series of three-minute bouts.

Bears often sustain injuries such as ripped noses and mouths.

Most are permanently scarred.

Bear baiting is forbidden under Islam and has been illegal in Pakistan since 1998.
International charity theWorld society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) has discovered that many bear baiting contests continue to take place.

In this 21st Century, Pakistan is the only country in the world where bear baiting is known to take place on a significant scale.

Bear baiting is a real threat to Pakistan’s remaining wild bears. WSPA estimates that there may be just a few hundred bears left in the wild in Pakistan.

In recent years, WSPA’s efforts have been supported by a series of changes to provincial laws and a directive issued by President Musharraf, reminding officials to act against bear baiting events.

A bear sanctuary was built by WSPA in Kund Park, North West Frontier Province, in 2001. Providing the authorities with a purpose-built facility where confiscated bears can be re-homed.

Now home to several rescued bears, this sanctuary provides a more natural environment for the bears t live out their lives.

A WSPA-sponsored education programme is helping to create awareness in future generations of the cruelty involved in bear baiting and why it is wrong.

WSPA is continuing to work with the Pakistani authorities and is supportive of the efforts of the Pakistani government to enforce the law.
