There seems to have been some... odd decisions along the line

(The mastiff hunter pet isn't the same issue, since working dogs are used in war and hunting irl. But dog fighting is a different story, it's not socially acceptable.) At one point Blizzard said humanoid kids wouldn't be included, but the pet battle page features artwork with the oracle hatchling, so I don't know what's up with that. Personally I wish they'd make the whole pet battle thing harmless duels so violence isn't an issue.

They're all animals, and making any animals fight for entertainment is inhumane. But this is a video game. We're not watching them duke it out mortal kombat style, and since our pets aren't eliminated after they lose, I'm pretty sure everyone assumes that these are harmless battles where we can revive them and fix them up, good as new. So I can't relate to anyone thinking that this is a particularly violent system.
