Are animal fighting for entertainment haram?


Like cockfight, the lions den that fights to the death for human entertainment?


In this post, Shaykh Gibril said:

As stated in the Qur’an both the taskhir of creation (its being put at mankind’s disposal) and the honoring of human beings dictate the permissibility of using animals for mankind’s benefit such as farming and consuming them, or raising them for other purposes, together with the categorical prohibition of tormenting them for sport or pleasure (as in hunting them for sport, or cockfights, or dogfights etc.).
