The thing about this that is upsetting is, the club in Logansport has been in operation for a long time, nobody ever questioned its operations before, but now the owners are in jail, for all sorts of non-violent crimes, that add up to not paying their tax`s to the federal government. Now yes, they found a cpl guys with drugs and illegal weapons, you can go down to the mall round up all the people who work there and the customers and search every vech., guess what you will find?
Now the club up north of New Orleans, I personally have never heard of, but the same charges were claimed, but several workers were arrested and the 60 yr old owner was arrested for METH?,WOW that Meth had gotten bad when a 60 yr old man is doing it. And they arrested some of the spectators for bringing their children to the club, now, this is very upsetting for these families now are under the States eye. Seems to me the State of Louisiana is now engaged in a assault on cockfighting, that destroy`s businesses they have allowed to operate, and to destroy families with these charges the choose to enforce and the ultimate goal to kill my roosters. Every club is on notice now about their record keeping's. You can`t hold all cock fighters and pit owners guilty of these guys faults.

NON-VIOLENT???? Egad, No Sense. What kind of yack is that? The owners were arrested, went to jail and will pay fines, just like all the other idiots who continue with this activity soon to become illegal. I can't wait for you to have your turn.

They were arrested for non-violent crime!
We will have to see how these charges play out, in America you are innocent till proven guilty, I feel these is only about Big Brother wanting his cut of the money made, funny never heard one thing about them poor old tortured chickens as being the reason.
One thing I do agree with though, if anyone had drugs on them they did deserve to be arrested. No person was arrested that attended the cock fights ,unless they had drugs on them and out of the 100`s that were there a cpl were arrested for drugs. Bet I could go to any bar or even your local church gathering and fined drugs and illegal weapons and even some fugitives from the law. Meth. is a big problem all over the United States it is in every community rich and poor. Crime is a bigger problem in the big cities where all the "Civilized" folk live and is caused by many different
"Civilized" lawful business and activities, cockfighting is not and never has been the hub of all this States or Nations perversions. So for you to say this sport is evil, you need to look around yourself, there is much more to worry about and blame the States and Nation and the Worlds problems on than cockfighting.

LOL, I do not care about those pics, many will agree that you are judging people by what they wear, you do not know what their education is or isnt. Just because one wears blue jeans and a T-shirt doesnt mean he is uneducated, just like because you wear a suit and fancy shoes doesnt mean you have a education either, many highly educated people have done some outrageous acts against their fellow humans too.

You cant wait for me to have my turn?, you miserable women, you wish harm on people(Humans), and you wish jail on people(Humans) that have not harmed you or wished any ill toward you, all for what? what will be gained by the outlawing of cockfighting? What will you go after when and if cockfighting is outlawed?

Mr. Know It All.... read this excerpt and tell me if it is wrong, and if so, what is stated wrongly.

"In nature, a rooster may fight another rooster over territory or over a mate, but these fights are usually brief and don't involve serious injury. In organized cockfights, however, the roosters' natural instincts are exaggerated. Through breeding, feeding, training, steroids and vitamins, the roosters become killing machines for people's entertainment. Before a fight, a bird may go through several months of training, which may involve running long obstacle courses or even treadmills, and practice fights with other roosters. Just prior to a fight, most of the bird's feathers are plucked, and the breeder also cuts off the animal's wattles-the combs below the beak-so that his opponent cannot tear them off during the fight.

In the fighting ring, the roosters often wear artificial spurs-long, sharp, daggerlike attachments-that transform their natural spurs into knives for maximum injury. These steel blades are sharp enough to puncture a lung, pierce an eye or break bones. A referee is on hand to supervise the fight, which can last anywhere from a few seconds to 15 minutes. While the rules usually do not require one or both birds to die in order for a winner to be declared, death is often the outcome, due to the severity of the injuries."

I do not wish harm on you. I only wish you get what you deserve if and when as you have indicated you will break the law. And I can't wait for ALL of you barbarians who break the law by inflicting pain on other living animals/birds to get what you deserve. There is a simple way. STOP the barbaric practice. Get what you deserve. If you break the law, I can't wait for you to get your turn. Obviously you already know the results of our goals since you say "when and if". Sorry, you indicate you have the thought processes to make decisions. It is YOUR CHOICE.

Why don't you just ask why he thinks the way he does and give him a chance to explain. You are very quick to put words in other posters "mouths". It ain't gonna hep you, ma fren! Cockfighting is going down and Louisiana will be able to take another bad mark off it's image.

You act like I"m just sitting on these boards posting stuff to hear myself type... I will continue on just like I"m doing now- trying to be an advocate for losers to spay and neuter their pet, going after puppy millers, ignorant backyard breeders, helping rescue animals, giving money (that I work my arse for!) for research on dog diseases...what say you? What will you do except to continue to promote cruelty and try to justify it.

OK I will
."In nature, a rooster may fight another rooster over territory or over a mate, but these fights are usually brief and don't involve serious injury"
This is incorrect, a regular yard rooster might, but these are not regular yard roosters, these are a aggressive breed, that in the natural will fight to the death or till one has been injured so severely it can not fight at all, these roosters have a natural spur that grow very long and sharp, undoubtedly who ever wrote this has never seen nor raised this fighting game fowl and have never seen them fight in nature.
"Before a fight, a bird may go through several months of training, which may involve running long obstacle courses or even treadmills, and practice fights with other roosters."
I have never heard of a cock fighter putting his rooster through months of training for a fight, you have no idea the time that it takes to condition a battle cock nor do you have any idea of what the conditions are for, yes through the years many a cock fighter have tried many different methods to improve the chances for his battle cock to win the big derby and money, the battle cock can not be taught to fight, even when we spar the battle cocks against each other it is not to improve their fighting skills it is to judge if they have the ability to win a fight, many roosters never see the pit because they can not fight at the level you did to win, so most are sold or traded or killed.
"Through breeding, feeding, training, steroids and vitamins, the roosters become killing machines for people's entertainment".
Yes, we breed the winning birds to have other winning birds, just as a horse that wins the Kentucky Derby, his offspring that is produced is likely to be winners and the owner is able to sell the winners offspring for more than just the norm, so it is with breeding a winning Battle cock. Feeding, we do feed our Battle cocks very well and they are given vitamins and medicines to protect them game fowl have many common diseases including CRD."Steroids" I do not use them on my Battle cock and many in the sport do look down upon the practice of it.
"Just prior to a fight, most of the bird's feathers are plucked, and the breeder also cuts off the animal's wattles-the combs below the beak-so that his opponent cannot tear them off during the fight."
Pluck their feathers, are you freaking crazy, they need their feathers to fight! Wattles and combs are cut for many purposes some medical and some to keep the opponent Battle cock from grabbing hold

If this is really the truth, I would think they had been extinct many years before you learn to attach the knives to increase your sadistic desires to watch pain and blood.

Saying it again and again does not make it true!

You undoubtly do not know about gamefowl and the history of the battle cock.
The combatants, known as gamecocks or cocks, are specially bred birds, conditioned for increased stamina and strength. The comb and wattle are removed from a young gamecock to prevent health problems, such as frostbite or parasites. Cocks possess inherent aggression toward all males of the same species, thus do not require fight training.
These birds have been bred and their blood line protected by 1000`s of years of cockfighters, first the english brought their and then the Irish, if you were to release these birds into the wild you would be forced to kill them, they would not mingle with your yard roosters, they would kill it, so either you would exterminate the breed or this breed would kill the weaker breed fowl and then your flock would be full of aggresive Battle cocks or hens, yes, the hens are dangerous too.
And again, there is more blood and pain that a majority of American adults and children watch on your public t.v., than these Battle cock do,a chicken destine to someones dinner table endures more mistreatment and endures greater pain than my select Battle cock. I do not try to change your mind on how you feel or your own personal opinion, I just defend a tradition and a culture that my ancestors enjoyed, my grandpa and my dad and my children and their children, that YOU have decided is wrong and that YOU want to do away with by enforcing laws on me , that is what I am against.

My hat is off to the state police for shutting those two cockfighting pits down. The legislature, to this point, hasn't had the guts to stop cockfighting. Fortunately, the state police have found a way.
Cockfighting is on its way out. I think the legislature will find what it needs to finally ban this stupid and ridiculous form of animal cruelty.

Hank, you are so right! We are working very hard to make it illegal here. Why can't the few yokels left who enjoy such barbaric sports see what you so clearly see?

Indeed cockfighting is on it's way out!

If it were legal in all the other states of the Union, you would see there are more than a few "Yokles" that enjoy the sport, in many states where it is illegal,but yet they fight still, many local police officials turn a blind eye to it too, why?, because they know this sport harms no human and they have all they can handle fighting real crime and real drug dealers. You`ll never end cockfighting, it still will live on.
