The chickens bleed from their heads and bodies, and even bones get exposed, and then the winner and loser are determined. They mercilessly discard the chickens who lost and became useless. Once in the ring, roosters often wear knives or artificial gaffs that are sharp enough to puncture a lung, pierce an eye or break bones in order to inflict maximum injury.30 million roosters die each year due to cockfighting. This is not only about the injuries they take every fight on the field it is also about the trauma that had been given by the people who forced animals to fight for their lives. Training methods brutalise and fights inflict untold physical and mental suffering on ‘man’s best friend

Critics also note that cockfighting often is tied to illegal gambling activities, and that the birds typically are given illegal drugs to increase their fighting ability and stamina.

Birds who do not die during the fight are very often so badly injured and exhausted that they are killed anyway. Some common injuries that the cockerels receive include punctured lungs, pierced eyes, broken bones, and deep cuts.

Cockfighting, popular in many parts of Southeast Asia, is suspected of spreading the highly lethal bird flu virus from poultry to humans through contact with blood, feces and droplets of fluid.

So if you witness or suspect animal abuse, do not just stand there — report it! Animal cruelty is a crime, and the more often abusive individuals are punished for their behavior, the less likely others will be inclined to do the same.

ROOSTERS HAVE NO VOICE, SO IT IS OUT OBLIGATION TO SPEAK FOR THEM.
