- Hunting is not about killing. As the Spanish philosopher Ortega y Gasset put it, famously, one does not hunt to kill; one kills in order to have hunted. In dogfighting, blood is the only point.
- A hunter has the utmost respect for the game he chases, and when he kills, he does it as quickly and humanely as possible. The dogfighter exhibits the ugliest sort of contempt for his animals, and tortures them.
- A hunter uses the game he takes for food. I don't think we need to say anything about dogfighting in this regard.
- Dogfighting is all about the money, in prizes and bets, made from the bouts. No one hunts with an eye to the bottomline. To the contrary, hunters are constantly giving time and money to protect the environment in which they pursue game.
