WELL THE LADY WHO SAYS OKLA. WOULD BE A LAUGHING STOCK IS RIGHT, ECEPT FOR ONE OF MANY THINGS IT IS A cruel, bloody killing business. This is not a sport!!!! If it was the fight between 2 near dead roosters would be ended brfore the chickens got into the sad,near death situation that iscalled a sport. the 2 roosters are usually forced to fight to the death, at least fights I have seen. after a fight the loosing roosters is usually pulled off or killed in some other way. and the cost of healing badly injured rooster is to costly and time consuming. So he is put to death. dog fighting is the same, no difference. afer all these animals will fight to their death. for some good entainment why not let the egislator fight in the place of the chickens MAY BE THROW IN ANOTHER LEGISLATOR. pROBABLY SOME GOOD ENTERTAINMENT AND LARGE BETS PLACE. IT WOULD MAKE LARGE AMOUNTS OF TAX DOLLARS FOR oklahoma ,BE ENTAINING AS WELL. aNDA CHICKEN CANNOT SAY I QUIT, THOSE LEGE'S CAN. i BET THEY WOULD CRY uncle very(......... um wow no game chickens are not forced it comes natural dogs are diff story cockfight has been around b4 chirst if I was I bird id rather have a fighting chance than put in a fucking box with 20 other chickens werw the box is meant to hold maybe 10 max going down the highway for days no food water and guess what I kno bc I was a driver its bad cockfighting its survival of the fittest learn your shit b4 you give something a bad name like dog fighting)

2010 HSUS Form 990

This is the Form 990 (tax return) filed by the Humane Society of the United States for the tax year 2010. It was filed with the IRS on September 2, 2010. At 146 pages, this tax return covers most financial aspects of HSUS, and provides accounting details unavailable anywhere else.

According to this tax return, less than 1 percent of the HSUS budget in 2010 consisted of grants to real “humane societies” and other hands-on pet shelter groups in the United States.

Here are some other highlights:

Total revenue:$148.7 million
Total expenses:$126.4 million
Net assets as of December 31, 2009:$187.5 million
Fundraising expenses:$24.3 million
Salaries and benefits:$36.2 million
Pension contributions:$2.6 million
Total grants to other groups:$5.3 million
Grants to ballot-initiative political front groups:$1.75 million
Funds passed through to the HSUS-affiliated “Humane Society International”:$1.7 million

Custer this comment just goes to show why this country is going to hell. First off did you know that the chicken is exempt from the humane slaughter act of 1958, the reason is they are not as aware of what's going on such as say a pig, horse, dog, etc...Also that the only documented study ever done on cockfighting proves that cockfighters are law abiding, God fearing, honest hard working Americans, also that they do not do it for the gambling they do to maintain a breed of gamefowl (American cocker 1974 to 1991 ). Cockfighting is over 3000 years old and to say it isn't part of our cultural heritage is just stupid. Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln & several of our forefathers all was involved with gamefowl. The HSUS argues that slavery was once part of our heritage also but to compare African Americans to a chicken is a bold & also very racial statement. Another study proves that gamefowl are NOT forced to fight they do it naturally to the death with or without human interference. All these felony states are putting chickens above human life, we as Americans have the rights to defend our life, liberty & property with force & yet we don't do anything violent just because we as cockers see hope in our legislature. Ask your self this, if cockfighters are so violent why don't they burn buildings down and threaten human lives like the HSUS & PETA members do? I'll tell you why cockfighting has always been a gentleman's sport so we'll leave the violence to the real criminals. To say that we as cockfighters should put knives on & openly kill each other is the lamest thing I have ever herd. Most cockfighters have fought against humans in every conflict America has had, so how many battles have you been in? How many months have you not seen your family? And now we that protected this country with our lives are all of a sudden being put in prison and barred as criminals. The government trains killers but that's ok? People like you make me sick, you set back and judge something you have no idea about, we cockfighters have seen prejudice, discrimination and to loose ones rights is very hard.
Thank you for your time,

I was raised in Kentucky and I love going to chicken fights. President Lincoin and Ronald Reagen both accepted cockfighting. How is it ok for people to shoot deer, bears, squirrels.. So why not fight chickens? Poor people make money this way and feed their families this way. It's legal in 3 states so why not every other state? If anyone in control sees this please take it into consideration!!
