Apart from the rest of the world, Bear baiting has been occurring in the Punjab and Sindh provinces of Pakistan, since long. The events are organized predominantly by local gangsters who own the fighting dogs.
During the event, the bear will be tethered to a rope 2.0–5.0 m (6.6–16.4 feet) long in the center of an arena to prevent escape. Bears' canine teeth are often removed and their claws may be filed down giving them less advantage over the dogs. Each fight lasts around three minutes. If the dogs pull the bear to the ground, they are said to win the fight. Bears usually have to undergo several fights during each day's event.
