I think it should b legal due to the fact every man or woman who raises chickens love there animals. Cockfighting is not about the fight its about the breeding and maintance of a family. We already watch humans on tv beat each other to crap and end up with brain damage of some sort that could b life ending. Everyone that don't feel the same don't know the lord and what they r put on this earth for. Just lazy people with money that have never saw a cockfight just lie on the sofa and watch soapoperas with the mini dogs that cant protect u form a bobcat. Cockfighting world has it many ups. Have ever thought fossil fuel in which the chicken could and would contribute to in next 20 or 30 years. Gas oil etc. comes from the ground. We're takein all the out the ground and puttin nothin back in da ground to make fuel. We as people need to focus about life and the future. Not even listen to what a group of people think that is too lazy to feed 3 horses if they had to. May God Bless

...don't try to make it sound like cockfighting is a good thing, first of all if you love something you don't force it to fight, you try to protect it, you sound like your from the back woods with no education , cockfighting is illegal for a reason it's cruel to animals, people aren't forced to fight to the death like roosters for idiots entertainment and a few extra bucks, get a new type of entertainment, and I was raised on a farm, so I do think i know what hard work is, but i was also taught right from wrong, and your wrong.

When I was in college I went to a cockfight and saw how much they loved their chickens. Save it buddy. Tying razors to chickens legs and letting them stab each other, then pouring gasoline on the losers to bury them isn't love

ohplease you sound like the typical animal lover. You know 0% about what your talking about. If you did you would know there is no forceing them to fight. Wether anyone is watching them or not they will fight to the death as soon as they see each other period. Also the only reason cockfighting is illegal nowdays is we have lost our rural values to city folk who have nothing better to do. It's one of the oldest sports known. Practiced by many well known people. When you come up with good info. them spout your babble.

Theres alot more to it and you know it. They dole out hormones, starve them to make them aggressive etc. My ex-brother in law was a fighter. He finally got religion and did the right thing and gave it up.

Cockfighting Fact Sheet
1. What is cockfighting?
Cockfighting is a centuries-old blood sport in which two or more specially bred birds, known as gamecocks, are placed in an enclosure to fight, for the primary purposes of gambling and entertainment. A cockfight usually results in the death of one of the birds; sometimes it ends in the death of both. A typical cockfight can last anywhere from several minutes to more than half an hour.
2. How does it cause animal suffering?
The birds, even those who do not die, suffer in cockfights. The birds cannot escape from the fight, regardless of how exhausted or injured they become. Common injuries include punctured lungs, broken bones, and pierced eyes. Such severe injuries occur because the birds' legs are usually fitted with razor-sharp steel blades or with gaffs, which resemble three-inch-long, curved ice picks. These artificial spurs are designed to puncture and mutilate.

Aren't these birds natural fighters?

While it is true that birds will fight over food, territory, or mates, such fights are generally only to establish dominance within a group (the pecking order) and seldom result in serious injury. This natural behavior is quite different from what happens in staged cockfights, where pairs of birds, bred for maximum aggressiveness (and sometimes given steroids or other drugs to make them more successful fighters) are forced to fight until a winner is declared.

What can I do to help stop cockfighting?

If you live in one of the states or territories where cockfighting is still legal, please write to your legislators and urge them to ban it. If you live in one of the states where it is still only a misdemeanor, please write to your state legislators and urge them to make it a felony offense. To find out how your state treats cockfighting, visit our page on State Cockfighting Laws.

We encourage you also to write letters to the media to increase public awareness of the dangers of cockfighting and to law enforcement officials to urge them to take the issue seriously. We have provided sample letters in this packet. You may want to display our cockfighting poster in your community; additional copies can be ordered from The HSUS.

If you suspect that cockfighting is going on in your own neighborhood, alert your local law enforcement agency and urge agency officials to contact The HSUS for practical tools, advice, and assistance.
