Don’t Force Dogs to Fight Boars in Indonesia

Target: Joko Widodo, President of Indonesia

Goal: Stop cruel dog and boar fights in Indonesian villages.

Villages in Indonesia’s West Java region are hosting brutal pit fights between dogs and boars. These animals are kept locked in small cages and forced to fight until only one is left standing, which the villages claim is to test the animals’ hunting abilities. The winner is allowed to heal, but the loser is made into meat— whether they are dead or alive after the fight. Dog fighters are given a $2,000 reward if their dog wins.

We cannot let this go on. Innocent animals are being horribly mistreated for the sake of unethical fights, all for the sake of a few moments of audience cheers and a potential cash reward for the winners’ owners. The locals defend these brazen acts of cruelty as a beloved “tradition” that must be upheld at all costs, despite animal rights activists describing them as “a criminal act against animals.”

We must protect these innocent creatures from dying in such a cruel manner. Sign this petition to demand the West Java region’s villages outlaw these fights now.


Dear President Widodo,

Villages in the West Java region are pitting innocent dogs and boars against each other in brutal pit fights. The animals are kept locked in small cages and treated poorly overall before they are forced to go head to head, fighting tooth and claw until only one remains standing and the other is either dead or near it. Either way, the loser is slaughtered for meat.

You cannot allow this to continue. These poor creatures are forced to maim each other for the sake of audience cheers and a cash prize for the winner. It is unethical and cruel, despite the villages’ claims of it being a beloved “tradition,” and it must be stopped and outlawed immediately. Protect dogs and boars from this brutality by initiating a countrywide ban on this barbaric practice.
