Deprivation is a form of cruelty !

You obviously know how a dog wags it's tail when it is happy, well, PB will do that just before engagement. In an open space where it can run, it'll choose to fight instead of running. They do not yelp in pain and quite often tails wag during the fight.
PB is in an open class where all comers are taken. Rott. at over double the weight of PB will be brought down in seconds.
Yes, dogfights are very much to satisfy the owners' ego which is why they are often prepared to bet all their money.
Because of blood and injury even death, we deem it cruel, I agree. Thoroughbred horses will keep running until they collapse and die, which is why a jockey has to pace the horse and then stop it after the race. Human greed is the true cruelty. We watch two people pound each other in the head and call it a sport !
The PBT breed is all about killer instincts towards other dogs, it should have no place as a pet. Many potential PB owners like to associate with this breed not knowning the dangers involved.
When you have kept a PB you'll find that it tries it's best to get into a fight. Climbing 6ft chain link fences is no deterrent. Waking up after an electric jolt, it'll look for the other dog to fight again. Believe me, there is probably no other more agressive dog breed on this planet.
BTW, the reason why we do not use PBT for hunting is that they try to take on wild boars, often 5 times it's weight, with 2 razor sharp fangs and a hide tougher than car tyres, on top of that in the Boar's home ground ! Often critically injured, they will want to go again.
