They're CHICKENS, for God's sake! Let them fight...POpeye's, KFC, Church's and Tyson Foods are gonna boil 'em alive anyway and while they wait they are penned in one foot cages and rotated so they can devour their own fecal matter to fatten 'em up!

Save the chickens?? DUH? Cock fights are more humane (and a lot more fun!)

They CANNOT be eaten because they have been injected with large doses of steroids, possibly other drugs. One of the roosters might be usable servicing hens if somebody wants them for a backyard egg operation.

I just watched two guys beat each other to a bloody pulp on tv. Every week more child molesters are shown in the local paper, and drug dealers are running rampant in every state. And we are concerned about a few people fighting a chicken!!!!

Tell that to Michael Vick. Besides I think that they are more concerned about the illegal gambling.

What weigh class was the chicken and the guy who fought it?? Inquiring minds want to know?

Sure "officials saved fifty roosters"! They'll be taken to the pound and be killed, even if they call it by the code word "euthanasia". The sport should have NEVER been outlawed in New Mexico the way it was. Good old Governor Richardson and the legislature KNEW that it could be outlawed county-by-county at anytime, as many had already done so. The remainder should have had the option to keep it legal if the voters in those counties chose to. It's amazing what those radical animal righters dollars can buy.

Those poor roosters.Animals shouldn't be forced to fight.It's extreme animal cruelty.I hope the people that own the roosters go to prison for a long time.

Let the schlongs fight. The biggest schlong wins, unless the stamina in a little schlong ( now a wee-knee) is better.
