The cock fighting season is coming to an end in the United States. Many birds who cockers deem not fit to fight are just tossed to the roadside, literally. This rooster had been dead a few hours when I found him. He was dubbed, spurs cut to the bone, and tagged; which are signs he was bred and raised to fight. Bloodsport is a multimillion dollar entity that is rarely prosecuted for the sake of the animals. Most charges that finally go to court are based on tax fraud, gambling, drugs, or immigration.
Too many assumptions are made as to who fights animals. This prejudice often gives strength and anonymity to the fighting communities which are mostly white, middle to upper middle class.
