Dog fighting on Channel 4 – 10pm Thur 12 June 85 minutes long


Dog fighting has been identified as a growing problem in inner cities. Filmmaker Penny Woolcock engages with people involved in dog fighting and explores attitudes to blood sports.

In this Cutting Edge documentary, multi-award-winning filmmaker Penny Woolcock is reunited with former gang member Dylan Duffus to explore the criminal subculture of the dog fighting world, as they examine our conflicted relationship with animals.

Demonised by the media, certain breeds of dog are seen as status symbols, and some are also trained to fight. Dog fighting has been identified by the police and RSPCA as a growing problem in inner-city areas.

In this challenging film Penny engages with those involved in dog fighting and meets academics and historians to question attitudes to blood sports and our treatment of animals as commodities.
