We need to legalize mixed martial arts fighting in this state and stop all the brutality to animals. Encourage people to get in better physical condition and provide a higher class of entertainment

They were not arrested just ticketed and released. They should have got a $30,000.00 bail on them.

Why have a football team that is name gamecock and not have the sport?... Geez..perhaps those attending a football game should be arrested too for being present at a cockfighting event and mistreatment of players..Especially last half of last season...

cockfighting is not ill treatment to animals it's in their blood to fight with one another.

You are an idiot. It is only in their blood because stupid people teach them to fight from birth.

I think everyone here should see a cockfight before they say its bad. If you would have been there yourself, you would have had a whole different oppinion. Hell, I dont even see why it was on the news in the first place, they just came in, put us in a circle, got our drivers license, ticketed us, told everyone to take our stuff back home. Not just the birds, but everything. I had been asked to go by a friend, it just so happens I was there when it was raided. He was fighting roosters that day, and I spent every day at his house. Not a single day did that man hurt his chickens or make them mean. They did it from instinct. People who make these damn judgements are people that probably dont even have any chickens themselves. The gamefowl are a beautiful, smart, but tempermental breed. Thats why they are bred. No matter if cockfighting becomes felony or not, do you think the breed will quit fighting from instinct? I mean, hell I will find you too baby game roosters, and let you raise them. Let them grow up to run around free together like your family did generations ago with their layers. Come home one day to either bloody and hurt roosters, or dead roosters. Leave it to god to do the judging, without cockfighting their would be more chickens than people knew what to do with them. And I agree, these birds that died could have fed someone in the jails or someone thats homeless.

You are the idiot,we dont teach them to fight in fact when they are about 7 mths old if you dont seperate them they will kill each other. You do not know any thing about these roosters or you would not be making such stupid comments. At least in a cockfight they do have a 50 50 chance. When they take these roosters and throw them in a box and put the gas to them they have no chance at all and this is suposed to be humain. Tell me just what is humain about that? Do you know about species of fowl going extinct, which is exactly what would happen to them if people are afraid to raise them. I guess you noticed the word fowl as that is what they are, GameFowl are birds not animals. I must ask do you eat chicken? Did you know that chickens eat there own shit, think about that when you eat your next chicken dinner. All I am saying is that before you judge people about what they do try to research the topic before you start running your mouth GET EDUCATED at least you wont look so stupid when you run off at the mouth

Do you mean it is illegal to put on an exhibition? It is not illegal to train for MMA.

Training and an exhibition of MMA can be done in S. C. You cannot have an event/show and sell tickets. It might cut the crowds at rassling.
