We hope this isn’t a trend. On October 10, just east of the community health center in a courtyard in Beijing’s Daxing District, according to Sohu, two rings were set up to stage a day of dogfighting. Hundreds of onlookers and dozens of gamblers were ringside, and up to
20,000 200,000 yuan’s worth of bets were placed.
There are five more pictures after the jump, all from Sohu, and they’re all equally terrible. Dogfighting isn’t something one hears about much here — as rare as bullfighting — but apparently it’s a reality that we have to deal with, as surely as the fact that there are restaurants here that serve dog meat. Life is cruel.
