Did They Or Didn’t They?

You may have heard that the Dutch beer behemoth Heineken found itself in a bit of trouble recently. Seems their promotional banners were photographed on display at a dog fight in Asia. Maybe Mongolia. And the photo was from last year, but it’s getting traction now.

Now, I’ve read some of these stories and the company explains that the banners were there from an event the night before. Wonder why they don’t say what the “event” was? If it wasn’t dog fighting, then why not just say so?

What do you think? Did Heineken know that the venue was being used for dog fights? Or didn’t they?

What You Learned Today:

  • Sometimes things you see on the Internet are true. Sometimes they’re not.
  • Heineken promotional banners are clearly visible in a building where dog fighting takes place. (Or are they? Is it a bit of some not-so-fun-foto-fabrication?)
  • Do you wonder if Heineken is telling the truth?
  • Better yet, do you wonder why people like dog fighting?
  • I’d like to deprive their kids of life’s basics, teach them to fight and kill, and throw them into a ring at the same place and see how they like that.

 

 

About The Scottie Chronicles

Winston welcomes you to The Scottie Chronicles - a dog blog that began in 2009 as a voice for Stuart, a more than memorable black, brindle and white Scottish Terrier who captured hearts around the world. Stuart passed suddenly in December 2015 from cardiac hemangiosarcoma, a nasty cancer that took him far too early. He would have been 12 years old in March 2018. The Scottie Chronicles is dedicated to Stuart and the joy he shared with everyone who met him or saw him from afar. If you love Scotties, please follow along. Arroooo!

    Stuart – I agree with you 100% on the last suggestion on your list above!!!!!! What sick and demented person would even entertain the idea of a dog fight? Sometimeshumans just amaze me (and not in a good way).

    I only fight with Kenzie and it only lasts a second. No beer banners. I asked Them about dog fights and They’ve never been to one. He, however, did attend a cock fight in a country that should remain nameless (but the local language was Spanish and it was involved with a canal) since it was illegal there (but many government officals attended-no danger of a raid). It even had its own building. He never returned. The closest any of us has been to one is being at a football game where Michael Sick played-before the trouble was known publicly. I’ll be quiet know because once I get started on this I never stop barking.

  3. Sady and Lucy says:

    Wow, do we ever agree with you and Kyla. Michael Sick should have been thrown out of everything and still be in jail, ick! God put us on Earth so we could bring joy to peeps not to be used for such awful stuff. And, yes, we believe Hineyken is definitely involved in all of it. We sure are glad our Peep does not drink…more time for us, especially the belly rubs..ooooh so nice. Sady & Lucy in Texas

    Oh my just another sad story that says how low humanity really has gotten. We were crying about rhino population suffering at the hands of humans cutting off their horns.

    We think they knew and are just trying to cover up! Hope the dog fighting will be stopped too, but guess that’s too much to hope for.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

    Dad says it’s the Daily Fail, so not to be taken too seriously. They will do anything to sell their rag. Be that as it may, dog fighting is sickening, and we could care less about how it’s a part of their so-called culture or not. Causing needless suffering is just not on.

    Arrooos to you

    We don’t buy it!!! We don’t believe a thing they say…it’s all about the money and it’s not right. She won’t buy their beer…it’s not good for you anyway:) Stuart you are ahead of the game on everything…thanks for making us aware!!! OHHHHH and so glad you are barking at us…well barking at me. She doesn’t count! I’ve missed you!

  8. We don’t believe in any form of dog fighting, Sidebite and me disagree, we goes to our dog house till the Stubborn Scottie mad part is over!

    Oh, how awful. Dog fighting, that is. Poor puppers. I don’t usually drink Heiniken unless there is nothing else. I would like to hear the end of this story. Heiniken should be more careful.
