Where does the sport of bear baiting come from?



  1. 0 Votes

    Bear baiting, the barbaric practice of setting dogs on a chained bear, dates back to the Tudor reign of 16th-century England. Historical records recall Henry VIII and Elizabeth I being active spectators of bear-baiting. A ring was constructed on Whitehall, so that the royal family could watch the action from indoors. Today, it is illegal in most states, though an initiative to ban it in Alaska failed in 2004.
