Sometimes we have to read things that is beyond our comprehension of why so much sufferings is necessary in order to create awareness. It’s happening whether you want to know about it or not. So better you know and maybe do something about it.

Tsem Rinpoche

 


 

What is a Bait Dog – YOU DON’T LIKE THE PICTURE? – FACE THE TRUTH AND DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. WE ALL HAT IT – BUT SOMEONE MUST STOP THIS – WHY WONT YOU HELP?????!!!!!

A bait dog is basically a punching bag for game (fighting) dogs. Except we all know that dogs don’t punch, they bite and tear. Dog fighters use bait dogs to let their game dogs practice mutilating another dog, without being harmed in… the process. To insure their dogs aren’t damaged, they will either use duct tape to tape the bait dog’s mouth shut, or break out their teeth so the bait dog can’t fight back. They also either, put them in a pit, or tie them to a tree or pole, so that they can’t get away from the game dogs. And I did say dogs, plural, because they generally unleash several dogs on one bait dog at the same time. It makes the game dogs more aggressive, since there is competition.

To me, this about the most horrific form of animal abuse there is. I know that’s hard to weigh, because there are so many forms of abuse, but using bait dogs is right up there at the top. The mass majority of bait dogs don’t survive, and obviously suffer horrible deaths, spending their last moments in excruciating pain and are scared to death, before it comes. The ones who do survive, are maimed and scarred for life, both physically and emotionally. Very few who survived being used. It’s the saddest thing you’ll ever see, looking into the soul of a dog who has just been rendered helpless and defenseless, and mutilated by his own kind, at the hand of a human. These dogs make amazing recoveries and be able to transition into a somewhat normal life.

A bait dog can be any dog. It could be your dog. Although they (the monsters who use them) prefer to use non-aggressive or submissive Pit Bulls, they will easily use anything they can get for free. When they get Pits who won’t fight, or don’t fight well, they use them for bait dogs. They are well known for stealing other people’s pet Bullies as well. They will take them right out of your yard or fence if they can. But, they will also take any other dog they can get their hands on. When it comes down to it, they need fur, flesh, blood and meat to replicate a dog fight, so anything with all of that is fair game.

Dogs are also used as bait for hunting. They even use them as shark bait, but that is whole other topic right there. If people really knew what was going on out there, so many more of them would stand up and do something. That’s why it is my job, and yours, to educate them and get them to open their eyes. So they will wake up, get their head out of the sand and stand with us, in our fight to make a difference and change things. This has got to be stopped. The sub-humans who do this must be punished harshly for their actions. We are the only hope and protection these abused animals have against these monsters of our own species. We must stand up for them, and fight back against these abusers. We are the voice of the voiceless and we will not back down, nor will we be silenced or go away….ever! Never Surrender, Never Give Up! They are counting on us……

PLS STOP THE GIVE AWAYS OF DOGS. THEY END UP EITHER AS BAIT DOGS OR IN DOG FIGHTING AND MORE IMPORTANT – STOP THE BREEDING AND STOP THE OVER POPULATION. BE WISE AND STERILIZE YOUR PETS.

    It is very cruel to use animals for our selfish desire. Historically, human have been using animals for entertainment. For example, animals including elephants, whales, dolphins, tigers, lions, bears are trained in the circuses or theme parks to entertain people. Throughout the training process, the animals are beaten up so they will listen to the commands.

    When these animals are not in the training of performance, they are locked up in cages. It happened before that animals in circuses went crazy due to the stress and attacked people. They ended up being shot dead.

    In this case, dogs are used as a bait for other dogs to attack it. It is extremely cruel. The dog has to suffer so much before it dies. Imagine the fear it has when being attacked by so many dogs? Not only it has to suffer physically, it has to suffer psychologically too. We must stop this, we have not right to make animals suffer like this.

  2. Lin Mun on Aug 5, 2018 at 10:00 pm

    It is very horrible even for them to think of this game and get another dog as a bait. Human is a cruel creature to have such idea and create so much suffering to satisfy ourselves. We should not support such game and I hope authority will ban and take action against these organisers.

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing. I will not give away my dogs anymore

    请珍爱动物,它无法言语,无法表达并不代表它们无感受。每次我为动物受难流泪时,身边的亲人和朋友都以嘲笑的口吻说我要难过也应该是为 人类!而不是动物。我就常想动物都是有母亲怀胎生的和人有分别吗?

  5. Wah Ying on Sep 21, 2013 at 2:01 am

    当人的智能滥用来伤害另一个生命,而且是有系统、有策划、有意地用来作出伤害和产生痛苦时,那就谈不上是智慧了。

    每个人都喜欢欢乐、娱乐,不过当那个娱乐会给另一生命造成巨大、持续,甚至生不如死的痛苦时,那份痛苦将淹没我们享受的欢愉,那份欢愉就不是纯粹的了,也不是值得去追求的了。有句话说的不要罷快乐建立在他人的痛苦之上就是这个道理吧。

    但愿你我在寻找娱乐节目时,多一分清醒,多一分智慧。

  6. Patsy on Sep 20, 2013 at 4:15 pm

    This is so disgusting and sickening! How can human be so heartless! Poor dogs have to suffer in the hands of human greed and desire!

    Do not turn a blind eye to animal abuse! Please help to spread the news around so less animals will suffer.

  7. Carmen Lin @ KMP on Sep 9, 2013 at 11:29 pm

    This is very unnecessary, out of greed and pleasure human cruelly had the animals fight for each others’ life. This is very inhumane for human to treat animals this way. Animals help us to be better human but not this. This is really not necessary. I’m sharing this out and let more people know that this is happening. This is really shocking to know and is truly a mind opening informations.

  8. Darren Kechara on Sep 5, 2013 at 9:10 pm

    All these just for the sake to entertain some of us that liked violence and gambling. So many dogs suffered for the pain & fear, i really hope this to end…

  9. mitra on Aug 26, 2013 at 5:01 pm

    Om mani padme hum. We need to stop Eating meat .Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this news with us.

  10. Wan Wai Meng on Aug 25, 2013 at 4:37 pm

    Negative actions there is no silver lining at all, dogs are hurt and the people who perpetrated this also create a lot of negativity for them to suffer future sufferings. There is no benefit at all. That is why the wise shun negative actions.

  11. adelinewoon on Aug 12, 2013 at 11:52 pm

    I’m horrified and heart broken after reading this. I can not imagine being a bait, do not even dare to look at the picture for a second time, but it is very important that I get to read this article to understand more and to increase my knowledge on what is going on out there. It never seize to shock me when I read about how animal cruelty is done to animals, to the same species as human. I could not think of things like to do to an animal, I wouldn’t feel fun & enjoyable by hurting them either. I’m thankful and grateful that some one else is doing all they can to create awareness of animals cruelty and I’m lucky to be in Kechara because we are starting our own Kechara Animal Sanctuary to help the poor animals. Please be part of any cause that help animals, they really need us to speak for them, because they can’t for themselves.

  12. Jutika Lam on Aug 12, 2013 at 11:39 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    First of all I have to agree with what Rinpoche said that ‘Sometimes we have to read things that is beyond our comprehension of why so much sufferings is necessary in order to create awareness. It’s happening whether you want to know about it or not. So better you know and maybe do something about it’

    Though it is sad we really have to do something about it no matter how bad it may be or whether we like it or not.

    I am just so taken aback that humans are just taking advantage of animals such as dogs and using them against their will.

    It is just crazy why people would want to use an object that is already a lower class than us and yet people still want to abuse them and put them in to such torture.

    I really hope that such torture will end soon.

    Rest Well

    Love
    Jutika

  13. Felix Kong on Aug 6, 2013 at 6:06 pm

    Please do not create BAD KARMA again, please stop this entertainment, so sad and painful when look at this doggies , its totally suffering.

  14. Darren Kechara Paradise on Aug 2, 2013 at 5:17 pm

    This is so disturbing, using dog as a bait practice for their own fight dog to practice…

  15. Cliff on Aug 2, 2013 at 12:54 am

    I am absolutely disgusted by this, that dog is absolutely terrified and looks almost like its giving up on its life. Such a poor little baby. It really makes me sick to the stomach why would someone have the kind of mind set to actually go through with this sort of act. It is almost to the purest of evil. What kindof sick, demented, human being would put these poor helpless animals through this? Just so they can earn some money? Just so they can laugh about it? Just so they can be entertained? If it was all those reason then i’m afraid there’s something wrong with their minds and definitely need help. May these poor animals be free some suffering and take a good rebirth to some where more loving. We definitely need to be aware of the evil acts that exist within the world .

  16. beatrix ooi on Jul 30, 2013 at 10:08 pm

    This is so cruel! Can you imagine yourself being tied with a tree, and can’t do anything but allow others to beat you up? When I look at the picture above, I see a lot of pain and disappointment. Instead of us freeing them from suffering, we are actually making them suffer, I feel very ashamed because we are beings who can think, who can talk and who have the ability to stop all these. But instead of stopping these activities, we are actually putting them into that position where they have to either fight or in some cases, die. We should stop all these already.
    Thank You for sharing Rinpoche.

  17. Sean Wang on Jul 30, 2013 at 7:33 pm

    The idea of a bait dog is very stupid. It is forcing animals to fight animals, so that they can fight and kill more animals. The bait dogs have no say in this and they are completely defenseless. Horrendous actions like these create the causes for these people to suffer in their future lives. So, I hope they see the error of their ways quickly.

  18. MayOng on Jul 30, 2013 at 2:08 pm

    Even if we do not like animals, at the very least, we should not harm them. This is so sad that we have to use lovable animals like dogs who are loyal to human as punching bags. This cruel act has to be stopped.

  19. Julien Roth on Jul 30, 2013 at 11:31 am

    This is so mean. How can they be so mean to the dogs like that. By, making them bait dogs, i can’t imagine how much pain they are in during the time that the other dogs attack them. And when i read that they even broke off their teeth so that they cannot fight back, i had a chill in my body because that just sounds so painful. And i don’t think that they would use any painkillers to help the dog.

    We must help these dogs, i too agree that out of all the forms of dog abuse there are, this is amongst one of the top methods. Its cruel that they make other dogs do the work. So sad.

  20. Yasmin on Jul 30, 2013 at 10:13 am

    Reading this make’s me feel terrible towards the dog, but so many other animals are also suffering. We may just say but not do anything, we may feel pity towards it but still do nothing. Is it because we’re helpless? Is it because we can’t bother? I wonder why people do this…..hmmm

  21. sarahyap on Jul 30, 2013 at 5:02 am

    Oh dear… this is sickening to. I have never heard about ‘bait dogs’ before. I have always wondered how people train their fighting dogs without having them hurt, but it never occurred to me that they would use a method so cruel such as this. I think this is the worst side of dog fighting… how terrible to be in a position where one can’t defend itself and just wait for a slow death.

    WE NEED TO END THE SUFFERINGS OF ANIMALS NOW!

    Some people say, whats the point of helping one dog? There are still millions that suffer out there. But please keep this in mind, we may not be able to help all the dogs in the world now, but for that one dog we help, it is the whole world to him… it changed his life forever. Please never turn a blind eye to help animals just because its inconvenient

    • Sharon Saw on Jul 31, 2013 at 5:00 pm

      I so agree with you Sarah. Even if we help ONE dog, at least it is one dog less who is suffering. When people say that what can one person do… and then do nothing, it is just a cop out. If everyone could help just ONE dog, we would definitely be in a better place with these poor animals. Rinpoche always says that we alone cannot do much, him alone cannot do much but together we can do a lot and that is so true…

  22. apple on Jul 27, 2013 at 12:59 am

    Please help save other animals too…http://www.pcrm.org

    I really felt sick and wanted to stretch my hands in to the computer screen and save the poor dog. Why would people even enjoy watching this sick game of dogs fighting.Can’t they imagine themselves as the dogs fighting and themselves being the bait dogs. STOP THIS GAME RIGHT NOW!! End this suffering of the dogs let the people suffer like how the dogs suffer.

  25. Grace Leu(KHJB) on Jul 26, 2013 at 8:25 pm

    It was sad to know that how the dogs being abused as bait dogs. How the human can become monster to torture the dogs? So cruel and iresponsible. We urge to stop such inhuman action!

    The moment when I see this picture I feel very sad and angry. How is that possible a human being can do this to a innocent animal this is so cruel. To all the pet owner please protect your pets from become a victims. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this news with us.

  27. Sharon Saw on Jul 26, 2013 at 3:27 pm

    Another horrific story to remind us how inhumane human beings are. Actually, just reading the daily newspaper will tell you how horrible human beings can be – the murder, rapes, torture. And that is to other human beings, let alone helpless animals like the bait dogs in this report.

    I know a lot of people who are disturbed by this kind of news, saying that they would rather not know. Would they rather not know about the people starving in Ethiopia? Or even down the road? Because perhaps if they knew about it, they would maybe need to do something to do something about it.

    Maybe people don’t like it because they feel they can’t do anything about it. Or they think they can’t do anything about it. But actually there is always something we can do. The very least is to share this kind of information so perhaps you can’t do anything about it, but it will reach someone who can.

  28. yeomiawkee on Jul 26, 2013 at 3:19 pm

    It’s shocking and heart-breaking knowing this happens in this modern world and cruel for human to use dogs who are helpless and have no choice but to suffer in the hands of some cruel people who I consider is worst than a beast! I pray someone out there have enough power to once and for all stop this inhuman act and stricter law must be punished for those who have done this!

  29. Sharon Ong on Jul 26, 2013 at 1:45 pm

    Although this was such a painful piece to read, thank you for sharing it here, Rinpoche. I just cannot begin to comprehend how people would do such things to these innocent animals for money or pleasure. The photo of the battered dog sitting so dejectedly is really heart wrenching. Another reminder of Hell on earth.

  30. Jessica Yap on Jul 26, 2013 at 1:31 pm

    This just makes me sick to my stomach.. I cannot imagine having myown body (or anyone else’s for that matter) as a bait/punching bag. It is just pure torture to the flesh and soul.. NOBODY deserves this kind of treatment. Poor doggies being used as baits/punching bags. Poor doggies.. I hope that their life and Karmas to be tortured would end soon. I also pity the people who does this because of the karma they’re creating for themselves. Horrible!

    We definitely DO NOT have the right to do this! We need to stop this right now. Eating meat is already bad, but using them as baits/punching bags and torturing them is just a whole new level of animal abuse!

    Om mani padme hum..

    Thank you for sharing, Rinpoche..

    Nor matter what race or religion, one of the most beautiful qualities of friendship is to understand and be understood. Animals of different species can be together, playing together and have a close bond, we as human too could do it. Dogs aren’t only man’s best friend, there are other animals playing together. With patience, the seeds of loving-kindness, and understanding even our enemies can become friends. Most important whether that person is of the same race, faith, rich or poor, good or bad ,all are treated equally. There is a time for silence with the one who hurts us and yet a time to let go of the past. We should love all beings too.
    I have seen wonderful pictures of people and animals hugging, playing together, it tell us a special bond between them. When we love them….the animals will gives you loves.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing and teachings.

    Jetsun Milarepa was a Tibetan siddha, who famously was a murderer as a young man then turned to Buddhism to become an accomplished buddha despite his past. He is generally considered as one of Tibet’s most famous yogis and poets, serving as an example for the Buddhist life. Interesting biography of Milarepa which I truly enjoying and inspiring story of him. Depicted with Mahasiddha Marpa a great translator, Vajravarahi is a semi-wrathful form of Vajra Yogini, and Dorje Shugden is an emanation of the Buddha of Wisdom, created a beautiful powerful thangka .

    Lama Tsongkhapa is a “Buddha of our times” in the Gelug Vajrayana tradition. As an enlightened being, Buddha Tsongkhapa has the same realizations as all of the Buddhas. His practice is very powerful reliable and beneficial, as he was an emanation of Avalokitesvara , Manjushri , and Vajrapani . Among the many renowned teachings he gave and dharma texts he composed, Lama Tsongkhapa’s Lamrim Chenmo. We are fortunate , having the chance to receive and practice Dharma teachings from Lama Tsongkhapa through our lama. Beautiful thangka depicted along with Dorje Shugden the powerful Dharma Protector.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing and with short explanations.

    It is interesting that there are certain people who have psychic power or some sort of ability that a normal person may not have. Hard to explain why they are special scientifically but I believe each person have different capabilities in this world. For me if a person if gifted with certain capabilities, then they should use it to benefit others and not bring harm for own benefit and greed. Many however, will abuse the abilities to make profit and for personal agenda.

    On the other subject on mantra, it is powerful words of Buddha which brings benefit to not only to the person who recite it but can be dedicated to all sentient beings. Appreciation to Buddha for providing mantra for us to recite and opportunity to change the situation to be better.

    Thank you for the sharing, an inspiring article of a family growing up their kids and Living Off-The Grid in Lenggong Valley of Perak. I believe this is the positive mind set of the couples living closer to nature, explore to new ideas, being creativity, to live simple and happy with farming activities .

    There are number of people who are attracted to mother nature, they love the breezing air, greenery environment, and healthy living. Not many love to do this in this modern era where technology are vast growing where people are looking for more comfort and luxury homes.

    I loved the concept and the wonderful ideas of Tan and Ladia Kuta, being innovative, to facilitate, improve and to expend their living style. Thanks to The Coconut KL to introduce the Lenggong Valley and helping the couples to expend. Hope to get an opportunity to visit and enjoy the nature environment stay.

    Heard of this mythical creatures during my school days. Interesting stories and in Scottish folklore been told years ago. The Loch Ness monster is a marine creature that inhabits in the Scottish highlands waters. Recording to eye witness it is described as large in size with a long neck and one or more humps protruding from the water. There have been thousands of reported sightings of these creatures date back to ancient times. They ranged from eyewitness accounts by visitors to the area to unusual objects spotted by people. Many even has captured images of this creature but so forth there no hard evidence of it. Well I do believe that there was once do exist in ancient times .
    Thank you Pastor Loh Seng Piow for this interesting sharing.

    Reading all these inspiring worthy words appealing to H H Dalai Lama to lift the ban on Dorje Shugden, it tell us a thousand words. How much love and respect our Lama Tsem Rinpoche to H H Dalai Lama. Our lama always teaches us to respect H H Dalai Lama. This Dorje Shugden ‘s practice was passed down by generations of erudite lamas of the pure lineage since 400 years ago. For hundreds of years , many highly attained lamas has been propitiating and relying on Dorje Shugden as an Dharma Protector in the practice. They cannot be wrong in the practice. Because of the Tibetan Leadership political agenda, many has suffered such as services denied, families and monasteries divided and so forth.
    May H H Dalai Lama please have a dialogue with Dorje Shugden’s practitioner , to resolve the ban which is affecting millions of people.
    Thank you Rinpoche with these inspiring worthy words of appeals.

    It is not coincidental that past and present masters praised Diamond Lady , Vajrayogini as our saviour during this materialistic, desire driven times. As Rinpoche had said, her practice is most appropriate for us.
    Across the world more female are working than ever before, and are very successful holding the top post. Thank you very much for nice write up.

    Extremely happy to see the Green Girls efforts to the success of Kechara’s Organic Farm. I liked they idea, to cultivate the space to grow their own delicious, greenery, fresh and healthy vegetables. Of course we know organic vegetables contain’s more nutritious, healthier and safe.

    Apart of looking at these attractive farm, I believe this farm will improves the ecology of the surrounding environment. Looking on the support of the volunteers, I hope this project will meet their goals and achieve to a greater extent.

    I’m sure this though role activity involved will help the green girls and Kechara volunteers to maintain a healthy mind and body.

    I like the Dorje Shugden’s Tsa-tsa. It is very detail in making and beautiful. Not only easy to carry during travel also can use for premises decoration to further bless the premises. Now i know how it was made , and the history after reading this post. So they made based on the tradition in Tibet and everyone could invite home and for traveling as well as the beautiful Tsa-tsa is small and convenience. Thank you for the informative article.

    Thank you for the sharing, I never heard about it before, it’s the belief that there’s a divine, mystical relationship between numbers and the projection of life. There is one thing important to know that every number has a unique vibration by itself.

    I had a good read to know the auspicious sign of number seven belongs to Buddha Tara. It ‘s also the culture believe that all numbers has it own qualities. What I understand from this article is there is a hidden supreme power and spirituality behind every numbers.

    Traditionally, the Stupa is a representation of the enlightened mind of the Buddha and, as such, is a method for harmonizing, purifying, and balancing the elements of the environment. Stupas are structures that have been built for thousands of years, representing the highest potential of the mind, and bringing peace, harmony, health, and happiness to the surroundings areas. By participating in the building of a stupa, it is an extremely great merits ,to purifying our negative Karma and obstacles and it will enriches one’s own body and mind. Rejoice to Ms Veronika Tupayachi, been involved in the construction of a Stupa in Cusco, Peru. The very first stupa been built in Peru with the effort of Buddhist practitioners of various traditions and supporters. This project finally constructed after a few years and glad to hear from Ms Veronika who has not forgotten Rinpoche’s generosity and advices . May more people in Peru get to receive the blessing .
    Thank you for this sharing.

    Buddhism encompasses a variety of traditions, beliefs and spiritual practices. Buddhism is a path of practice and spiritual development leading to insight into the true nature of reality. As a Buddhists I do believe that nothing is permanent and that change is always possible.
    Anger and intolerance are the enemies of correct understanding. When anger rises, think of the consequences. For every minute we remain angry, we will give up sixty seconds of peace of mind. Well in Buddhist teachings, it tell us that patience is the antidote to anger and aggression. Purifying ourselves of anger is essential to Buddhist practice. We have to embrace our anger with patience and compassion for all beings as anger is one of the three poisons.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this teachings.

    There is a saying that we got to watch our thoughts, they will become our words. From our words, they become our actions. From what we do that’s our actions will become our habits. With our habits, they soon become our character.
    A change in our bad habits , leads a change in our life. Our success in work and life with be determined by the kinds of habits , we develop over times. All goes to practice what we want in life stepping out of our comfort zone to improve ourselves and transform our mind. Practicing and learning dharma makes permanent.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this teachings.

    Thank you for the sharing, sad to read about the poor little creature has to suffer so much just for human entertainment, fun and pleasure. I never thought of frog had a huge demand till I came across of this article.

    Every creation of God has a reason for living on earth with the same feelings. The feeling of pain, happiness, anger, depression etc. is the same for all. However, since animals and plants do not speak, we humans abuse them to such a great extent, that if they could respond back, we would have suffered much more and create the negative karma.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
