The economics of breeding is always congruent with fighting and without legal avenue aficionados are already starting “underground fights” that only exposes them to further legal danger when caught. Hundreds of businesses in the industry are already feeling the pain and are in the brink of bankruptcy. We are approaching the most critical phase of our historical existence; it does not far fetch that advances made in the industry may be reverted or experience a slowdown.

The most pressing issue is, how do we survive this ordeal? Some glitter of hope we’ve seen already in the Philippines. As of the moments Bakbakan & Digmaan, two of the biggest Stag derby duopoly has started talks thru the efforts of Congressman Sonny Lagon.
