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. The University of South Carolina's mascot is the fighting gamecock. 
  2. Animals still have feelings :/ whether it's roosters chickens or even bugs ! 
  3. 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!!!!
  4. Why do People gat mad that's are Mexican culture. What's more important birds or humans going to war hu
  5. Bunch of losers... they should focus their efforts on more serious problems in America!!. Cock fighting is like LAST on the list!. They're just stupid chickens!... they're plentiful!.
  6. Game cocks are bred to fight
  7. 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.
  8. The real tragedy here is so much wasted police resource on a handful of CHICKENS!. What a joke.
  9. 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
  10. It's what there breed to do and have been for more that 3,000 year. There not trained to do that! 
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. I see nothing wrong with this.
  14. idiotfest in the comments as usual. the great debate never fails me.
  15. This is so sad :(
  16. . The portrait of TEABAGGERS in South Carolina.! .
  17. 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.
  18. nothing is wrong with it they are not making the roosters fight and it is legal in thailand and all throughout asia 
  19. 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.
  20. Long. Live cock fighting ! All the way from south Texas!
  21. They tried to make the roosters look sad lol those birds were ready to go fight
  22. I'm with you Jay Bird
  23. What some are blinded to, is the weakening of our forefathers pursuit of happiness and the tipping of the scales of justice, so as to allow a portion of our society, possibly even a majority, to design and limit that pursuit to fit a "more perfect Union". This cause to end cockfighting is merely a small step for mankind of the future. Now what part will you play in that future. Someone may want to look at saving this species of fowl without being so foolish as to video their gruesome battles and provide such compelling images to the millions that would never otherwise care to see. Those that seek to end the "abuse" will be inflamed just as much so as one of these birds would be at being provoked by one of their own peer.
  24. humane society dont know about caring animals, they kill them
  25. 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
