Song to halt dog fighting
Musician Tiki Taane, in collaboration with Paw Justice, has released a new single to expose and eliminate dog fighting in New Zealand.
The single Enough Is Enough plays on the emotions of listeners to take a stand against dog fighting.
Users of the Paw Justice Facebook page were encouraged to post their feelings and experiences to help Taane with inspiration for his song.
‘‘ Enough Is Enough is the hardest thing I have ever done in my musical career,’’ he says.
‘‘It’s really challenging accepting the fact that dog fighting exists in New Zealand, especially at this level of aggression. It’s something I’ve always felt strongly about as I’ve had experiences with it as a kid.’’
Dog fighting is where dogs are bred, trained and forced to fight each other. Dogs suffer emotional and physical harm. Other forms of abuse include starvation, dehydration, dislocated legs (so they cannot run away) and filed down teeth so they cannot damage the prize dog.
‘‘This is the most horrific form of animal abuse there is, ’’ Paw Justice co-founder Craig Dunn says.
All proceeds go to Paw Justice.
