Is it any more ethical to take pleasure in watching animals fight in the wild then it is to watch them fight in a domesticated setting?

kinda. when they fight in the wild its by chance, when they fight otherwise, it could be avoided.

^ I'd say for wild animals they fight to survive, not for entertainment, plus one of them could surrender before becoming badly hurt, unlike captive fighting animals.

Survival... sex... because another male got to close to you... to work out your fighting skills... or just fun... different animals fights for different reasons. A lot of animals fight for more then just survival.

Depends if you're betting on it.

Forcing animals to fight is very wrong. When they fight in the wild, there are reasons for them doing so, usually over a female, or territory.

When animals fight, they generally don't fight to the death, unless they are insects or some kind of reptile. However, in captive fighting, they are bred to fight and are forced to fight no reason at all other than for human entertainment. Its the difference between watching a boxing match and a fight between gladiators, (if there still were gladiators).

There isn't an issue of ethics at all, unless you are the one who caused the fight.

Why would one "take pleasure" in watching animals fight? What specifically about it is pleasurable?

Can't say that I have. I'll admit when I've watched documentaries, I've had admiration for predators and how they take down much greater animals in the wild, or how some animals compete for females or territory, but I haven't ever seen animals fight just fight - unless you want to count my cats (and that's just annoying. LOL).

i don't like watching animals being forced to fight.

its not fun watching anything fight.

When animals fight in the wild it's for survival. They are in their natural setting and the act of fighting is not being forced onto them. In a domesticated setting, animals are forced to fight and trained to be fighter's. Domesticated settings are very unethical, however, I can't say that it's unethical to enjoy watching animals fight whether in a domestic setting or in the wild.

Yes, because they are not being forced to fight. They do it of their own volition.

*than*.

Either way getting pleasure out of it is rather barbaric. However, in the wild, it could be more of a sense of awe at the sheer power and destruction that these animals could do to us puny humans. There's little awe and wonder at a forced c*ck fight; the associations with it are very crude.

In the wild, it's natural. I don't think it's right to have them forced to fight.

Animal fights are only fun when they are attacking fat kids.
