I heard it was legal now in state of Ky. Don't know if any truth to it or not. If it wasn't why would they allow those people to raise them in them barrel houses. Has anyone seen those Rooster on 421 in Waneta. I bet they are 150 barrels with Roosters tied to them. Seems inhumane to me.

Cockfighting has been illegal in Kentucky since 1893. It's a form of organized crime and money earned from cockfighting often goes to other illegal activity like the manufacture of methamphetamine and the growing of marijuana.

A rooster is not an animal, its is a fowl. What is another two legged thing in the world besides a chicken and a human? So what would be the difference in two chickens or two men boxing in a ring?

Do they not consider it animal cruelty to have roosters tied by their legs to them barrels all the time? That don't seem fair for the poor roosters. I love raising chickens as a hobby, enjoy just watching them. Don't understand why anyone would deliberately want to be cruel by altering their feet, combs and beaks just to fight one another to the death. It should be outlawed and the property on 421 in Waneta is a shame, all them poor roosters out there tied up. I just don't understand why it is allowed.

Not much at all...there is a definite resemblance and I'm sure the mental capabilities are about the same.

However, I don't know of any modern boxing men that live in barrels with ropes tied around their ankles.

I think most men willingly make the decision to walk into the ring of their own free will and are not carried there and forced to fight until death.
Now there is a thought with possibilities...maybe anyone that keeps roosters in barrels should receive that treatment.

They have to keep the roosters tied on a cord to the barrel. It is the roosters natural instinct to kill each other. If one gets loose it will fight with every one there until it dies. So they in a way keep them tied up for there own protection. They are different from a barnyard chicken.

I believe 'Honest Abe' maybe they need to tie you to a barrel and stand out in the cold for awhile. It's animal cruelity plain and simple.

I meant to say, I agree with 'Honest Abe's" statement. Maybe if they tied one of your legs to a stake and you had to only have limited mobility and had to withstand cold and extreme hot condiditons, and force to fight for your life you then would see things differently.

That's not true my dad raised game chickens all his life and they would never fight one another to the death. Yes, they would fight and sometimes be bloody but finally one would give in or be run off and the other became the dominate one of the flock. You keep them tied up, that is unnatural and also you only keep the males and that also is unnatural, maybe if you put them in their more natural setting you wouldn't get the deadly results.

If you put a group of men in close quarters all the time without any female companionship, I'm sure you would get some men who would become violent, angry and want to kill the other. Chickens are animals and they deserve to be treated with love and respect same as a dog, cat, horse, or cow.

Him who? I just used Honest Abe as a screen name on a discussion forum and I don't care why someone else was called honest Abe. What are you talking about...have you considered that maybe my name is Abraham and that I'm honest?

As far as roosters fighting naturally...well that is one thing. When someone keeps them in inhumane conditions and un-naturally encourages them to fight and does un-natural things to them such as putting metal spurs on them then that is another story entirely.

If betting on something or gambling is so important then why not just bet on which leaf will fall off of a tree first or something. I don't see no reason for any human, animal, or fowl to need to die a bloody death so people can see a show and have something to bet on.

If you honestly feel that way then you should NEVER eat at KFC or LEES again. You should be a vegie. Don't kill the cow or the chicken. Dont eat eggs either because every time you eat an egg you are eating baby chickens. Think about that every time you eat for the rest of your life. Its the food chain.
