Shocking photo have been released showing wolfhound dogs attacking each other in organised fights set up by breeders.

The vicious bouts took place at a stadium in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, earlier today.

The bloody contests were organised by a local dog breeders club with the aim of finding the dog best suited to improve the Asian Shepherd breed, organisers claimed.

Twelve owners, from across Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan, brought their dogs to fight for the title of Champion of Breed.

Although banned in many countries around the world, dog fighting is a popular and legal past time in the country.  

While the massive canines violently attack each other, breeders, owners and spectators watch and even film the animals.
