Cockfight Rooster Fights Back
A rooster in an illegal cockfight in Lamont, California, has fought back against his captors after fatally stabbing one of them in the leg at a fight, with the blades attached to his feet. Jose Luis Ochoa, 35, was taken to hospital where he died, tragically. However this tragedy should serve as a further reminder of the trauma caused by this cruel practice to innocent chickens and roosters. Cockfighting is only considered a misdemeanour in California rather than a felony. This incident has led to increased calls for the cruel sport to be outlawed altogether in the state, as it is in many countries around the world.
