*** PRESS RELEASE ***
For anyone familiar with the term “pigging” or “pigdogging” they will have visions of extremes…extreme blood, cruelty and terror.
Bull arabs are the main breed of dog used by those who hunt pigs. The dogs are meant to wear vests to protect their hearts from tusks injuries but a lot of dogs dont wear these vests and suffer horrendous traumas. Most injuries regardless of the vests occur on the dogs faces and ears.
Also the pigs go through untold pain and torture being torn apart by the dogs, also the “hunters” blood the dogs (train them to tear up animals) using cats, dogs, rabbits and other unfortunate animals, also they “seed” areas i.e. leave pregnant sows and babies to thrive so they can continue this vile bloodsport
We have been contacted by a number of shelters who now have these dogs in their care and we have just rescued one from Toowoomba. Renamed, Lotus Tigerlilly has suffered horrendous physical and emotional scars at only 1 1/2 yrs of age. Her left ear was ripped in half lengthways, she has deep wounds all over her body and she is extremely scared of men and shakes in their presence. She was also, like a lot of these dogs, kept in a small cage and used for breeding so more pig hunting dogs could be available.
Her forever home is one of extremes…extreme kindness, love, affection and fun. It is taking time but as you will see from our fb films, her bright blue eyes are slowly getting their sparkle back. She is as gentle as a baby with people and animals, and even lets the rooster and chickens up on her bed with her!
