When elephants in the Island Safari Center on Koh Samui reach the age of six, they are taught to be able to control the ball, hold it in their truck and place it in a basket for their version of a slam dunk. There is a lot of training, but it seems like a fun sport that they can be taught that doesn’t require any torture to the animals in question.
This is one of the most controversial sports there are where two dogs have to fight each other until one is not able to continue. Many of the losing dogs will either die due to their injuries or be put out of their misery by the owners who are not happy with their performance. Many of the crowds that watch will place bets on certain dogs. One of the most notable rings was organized by NFL quarterback Michael Vick – who would spend years in jail before being able to return to professional football.
