The Humane Society of the United States' Animal Fighting and Cruelty campaign assisted Greenville County Sheriff's Department on what is perhaps the largest operational cockfighting pit in that state.

  1. Animals still have feelings :/ whether it's roosters chickens or even bugs ! 
  2. That must be painful 
  3. What's the difference between history "fighting roosters" and the people in the cage fighting on tv
  4. You guys are idiots people don't make roosters fight, they pretty much do it on their own, it's instinct. They fight all the time in wild. And if you ask me the living conditions of fighting roosters are a lot better than the ones in a farm, they also tend to live longer, I would know cause I have raised my own.
  5. omg you guys are crazy what do u think when ur fat ass if eating chicken nugets
  6. People eat chickens every day and y'all say we force them to fight
  7. Long. Live cock fighting ! All the way from south Texas!
  8. They tried to make the roosters look sad lol those birds were ready to go fight
  9. Police should focus on real crimes like drug traficking.child molesters do something are goin to kill them to or aru gonna take them home and take care of theme
  10. Fine rooster were born to fight even if you dont want them to fight they will still fighting.and what the police is going to do with them they are goin to kill them.
  11. I'm with you Jay Bird
  12. The Humane Society is full of Bull when it comes to cockfighting. If you want to see cruilty go to where they raise chickens for food consumption. 
  13. Gamefowl Fighting doesnt meet the statutory definition of animal cruelty relative to other activities,arguably more egregious,that r currently protected by the law.The Humanr Slaughter Act of 1958 specifically excludes poultry from humane slaughter requirements
  14. It's what there breed to do and have been for more that 3,000 year. There not trained to do that! 
  15. What about the chicken that we buy in the market, they only live up to 45 days or less, while these rooster can live up to five years with love and care. Ship these birds to the Philippines can sell them from $200.00 to $500.00 each.
  16. 1st,cruelty assertions r completely unfounded.Cockfighting has been stereotyped as an inhumane bloodsport amounting to animal cruelty.Nothing could b further from the truth.Gamefowl cannot b forced or trained to fight.They r genetically predisposed to fight.We r not discussing dogs.It is perfectly legal to feed a baby chick to a snake and film the carnage.
  17. Animals are property. They do not have rights in the way humans have rights. They only have protections that humans afford them. Even though I am squeamish watching this stuff, I see no reason why roosters deserve any special protections. This is a great example of government making criminals out of people who are not harming anyone else.
  18. Game cocks are bred to fight
  19. The real tragedy here is so much wasted police resource on a handful of CHICKENS!. What a joke.
  20. The hsus deosnt care for these rooster.they put them down. If eny state would legalize cockfighting they would make millions of tax money that is needed for a lot of things
  21. I wish YouTube would let me reply to some of the stupidity that @kingoftheleprechauns is putting on some of the comments 
  22. "As long as the Almighty has permitted intelligent men, created in his likeness to fight in public and kill each other while the world looks on approvingly, it's not for me to deprive the chickens of the same privilege." Abraham Lincoln
  23. humane society dont know about caring animals, they kill them
  24. The University of South Carolina's mascot is the fighting gamecock. 
  25. Any cocker knows that there is nothing cruel about it. Those birds get cared for better than most humans. And anyone opposed to the use of gaffs and knives have never seen a naked heel fight. Naked Heel fights using the birds natural spurs are brutal- The birds will be so mutilated, and beaten that by the time the fight is over you will want to just kill your bird out of a sense of mercy. Artificial spurs keep the birds suffering to a minimum while the birds do what they naturally do- fight.
