== Does this still go on? == no it does not go on!!!!

Does anyone know if bull-baiting still exists anywhere in the world, whether legally or not? I can't really see farmers in the UK donating their animals for such a purpose. XYaAsehShalomX 23:04, 20 August 2007 (UTC)

Not a hundred years or more in England. This was a public or commercial activity, you can'treally do it without someone noticing. Bulls are bread to breed not fight. Pubic taste in entertainment changed. This was originally done to improve the quality of the meat, but belief in effectiveness of/becessity for that also changed. Don't know about anywhere else.GBH (talk) 13:54, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

Yeah obviously I know it doesn't happen in England any more!! :) I was wondering about places like Pakistan where they still alow bear baiting. :( XYaAsehShalomX (talk) 01:33, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

There's a link about Scientology bull-baiting pointing to an article about auditing, yet in the referred article the word bull-baiting isn't even mentioned. Auditing is not bull-baiting. Someone should check for Scientology OSA manipulations and check this.--polarapfel (talk) 14:34, 27 May 2008 (UTC)

Pamplona[edit]

isn't this also what they do in Pamplona before the real bullfighting show? Run on the streets with bulls chasing them? --Sigmundur (talk) 12:14, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

Have you read the article? No, this is dogs being set upon a bull.--189.62.170.155 (talk) 01:28, 16 January 2010 (UTC)

Scientology[edit]

I think the link to Auditing/Scientology should be restored; and probably the reference should be included in the Scientology article. A google search for bull-baiting & Scientology shows a lot of references that the Scientology practice is referred to in this way. Having the link doesn't mean that the article supports Scientology, just that the phrase has alternate uses not related to the current article. Bob98133 (talk) 14:36, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

I agree. GBH (talk) 16:46, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

This article is garbage in its current form. The definition provided has nothing to do with the modern usage of the term. Does Scientology control Wikipedia now? Whoever removed the real definition has severely weakened Wikipedia's relevance. Nathan hawks (talk) 18:48, 30 March 2016 (UTC)

About the picture[edit]

Move that back to old English bulldogge. Hafspajen (talk) 12:42, 1 December 2013 (UTC)

catch dogs[edit]

Should this article mention the use of catch dogs as described in the catch dog, bulldog, and American bulldog articles? I'm no historian, but it seems that the sport of bull-baiting may have grown out of the use of working dogs to control livestock, and if it didn't, it must have been the other way around. The catch dog and bulldog articles have citations for the practice. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 172.78.12.91 (talk) 01:24, 23 October 2015 (UTC)
