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. cockfighting isnt even a cruel thing. you gotta respect that some do it because its a cultural practice. the way they butcher animals for food is worse than cockfighting.
  2. it kills me to see comments on here about how its so cruel and the birds get killed. The humane society takes them and kills them when they are confiscated. How are they helping this so cold problem. The food you consume in your mouth is treated way worse then these birds will ever be. Gamefowl are not cramped in pens so tight that they barely can shit out an egg, but your eggs you get from the store come from this type of situation. Male birds that are on an egg farm are grinded up the day they are sexed because to the company they are no value other than added to the feed that in return mixed back in for consumption of other fowl. Gamefowl are put on the best of food and in reality live longer than the chickens you feed your face with, because a meat chicken is only alive till 2-4 months then slaughtered. People need to ask them selves, would I rather be a Game cock or a meat chicken bacause a gamecock. I dont know about you but I know what I would decide.
  3. the sport of schmucks
  4. aint no rehab for a game cock born to fight till death 
  5. 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.
  6. Hmm, I was a bit surprised with how seriously these people are against cockfighting. I mean we eat chicken with no problem. But I would like to respect their view. I guess it would depend on the country where we are raised. Cockfighting was introduced by Spanish in my country. I only have a problem with cockfighting because it contributes to the communities problem with gambling.
  7. Our founding fathers of this country were cockfighting. You guys should be more concentrated on dog fighting. Where dogs are train and bred to fight. 
  8. Where could you find cocks or hybreed roosterrz that they are friendss..thats is the instinct kinds of the birds.they fight
  9. KFC tipped the cops. All they wanted was more chickens!
  10. omg you guys are crazy what do u think when ur fat ass if eating chicken nugets
  11. Animals still have feelings :/ whether it's roosters chickens or even bugs ! 
  12. Roosters fight naturally. Its in they're blood. How many chickens die a year just to be eaten. Humans dont train roosters to fight. 
  13. That must be painful 
  14. 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.
  15. humane society dont know about caring animals, they kill them
  16. People eat chickens every day and y'all say we force them to fight
  17. 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.
  18. Long. Live cock fighting ! All the way from south Texas!
  19. Police should focus on real crimes like drug traficking.child molesters do something real.you are goin to kill them to or aru gonna take them home and take care of theme
  20. They tried to make the roosters look sad lol those birds were ready to go fight
  21. The same people thinking this is cruel think that abortion aka jamming scissors into the back of an unborn babies brain or burning it to death with gases is a perfectly legitimate medical procedure. Long live cockfighting and PISS ON THE HSUS!!!!
  22. 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. 
  23. The real tragedy here is so much wasted police resource on a handful of CHICKENS!. What a joke.
  24. What's the difference between history "fighting roosters" and the people in the cage fighting on tv
  25. 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.
