Ok once again I say we have lost sight of the bigger picture we should worry about men and women that are fighting for our freedom, not birds dieing at a cock fight. Lets see who really matters to us people killing birds or people killing our soldiers?But hey I love my family and friends and lets face it we eat chickens everyday , think about how humane are the farms where these birds are raised go visit one and let me know.

the only reason they made the damn raid was because they got a call !!!! the call did not state that there was cockfighting going on!!!! the call told them that there was free doughnuts and coffee party !!!!!! the fat lard ass cops could not resist the temptation and flew over there asap!!!! and stumbled onto the fighting!!!

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.
put your hat back on !!! nobody wants to see your bald lopsided goofy looking head !!!

A Ban on cockfighting is the worst thing that could have happen. I have been to a few cockfights. Is it ok to fight cocks? No. This is my opinion.Now cockfighting has been pushed underground. What does that mean? A bunch of thugs are going to get together in some ones back yard and fight anyway. Now you have no security guards or police to watch over the event. These thugs now have the freedom to bring what ever they want. Guns, drugs, illegal gambling. Again my opinion cockfighting should have never been ban.

I WENT TO CHICKEN FIGHTS OVER 20 YEARS AGO IN LOGANSPORT, LOVED IT!! HAVEN'T BEEN SINCE I WAS A TEEN BUT I'M WONDERING WHERE THEY ARE NOW. JUST CURIOUS, IT'S BEEN A LONG TIME SINCE I PUT A BET ON A RED OR A YELLOW. I REMEMBER THE SPARRING, THE GAVS AND THE BLADES WITH THE LITTLE LEATHER STRAPS TO TIE THEM ON. YOU USUALLY KNOW WITHIN A FEW MINUTES IF YOUR ROOSTER WON OR LOST, IT'S A QUICK THING. WHAT'S UP WITH LOUISIANA BITCHING ABOUT THE GAMBLING, BUT THE COCK FIGHTING IS LEGAL?? ANYONE BEEN TO THE BOATS LATELY? LIVE & LET LIVE
let the ladies put on spurs and get in the ring and fight.

Why are ya'll fighting this so bad? This is crazy! I dont go to cock fights, but I dont see the point in the ban. I use to own a game rooster or fighting cock plus hens, They serve no real purpose, I did not fight them, but I know what my rooster was worth and I should have sold him instead of giving him away, he was worth over a thousand dollars just cause of his blood line and that was without him never being fought. The hens eggs were not very tasty to eat, and we even tried to eat some of the game chickens- it was tough and nasty, these birds are not like regular chickens, I had to keep my hens away from the rooster cause I didnt know that you had to file or clip the spur, he would tear my hens up, after we tried to eat them, we got rid of them cause they are good for nothing, you cant have two males around each other and really not even with the hens.There are better things to do with your time then waste it on these birds!There are real issues like dog fights were the animals are severly hurt or get killed. The game cocks will stop if one submits plus they arent like dogs they dont get the blood taste and then attack humans besides if they went after a human what damage could they really inflict a scratch? Let them have their cock fights cause truthfully it probably stops alot of crime, casue they have something to do. I went to a fight when I was 12 and it wasnt a blood pool at the end there was very little blood, hell my hens bleed more when the rooster tried to mount them! These birds are worthless other than to fight. And I am against cruelty to animals but damn go to a fight and see for your self how "cruel" it really is. and as far as kids seeing it goes they see worse if they live on a farm and thats for food so thats humane? Get a grip fight for something worth fighting for not these damn birds.

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?
a cage for humans with spurs. maybe four at a time.
