Dog fighting is commonly seen in streets. But have you ever tried to figure out what can be the reasons behind this? You either enjoy seeing them fighting or completely ignore it. At worse, throw a stone at them to sweep them away without thinking about the pain that they will go through.
Dogs who haven't been spayed/neutered fight as spayed and neutered dogs are less likely to bite and the female dogs who haven't been spayed attract a large number of male dogs which is the prominent reason of dog fight. Similarly, dogs might fight when they see a new dog entering their area. They stay at a territory and if any new dog enters that area, they can't tolerate them and start fighting. Another reason is that if a person give food to dogs and in the competition to eat the food, they fight over them as food might not be enough for all the dogs. Likewise, dogs that have not been properly socialized with other dogs may fight them out of fear, or be attacked for their rude and aggressive behavior.
