Cockfighting could earn millions for state
Regarding The Californian's May 26 editorial, "Two cockfighting bills that were long overdue": On behalf of the thousands of game-bird hobbyists, I'd like to say that anyone who has been raised around game birds knows that a rooster cannot be forced or trained to fight; this is a natural instinct that was instilled by God.
Animals that are forced to do what does not come naturally to them is cruel. Were horses meant to be ridden? Are the animals in the circus, zoo or rodeos meant to be used for our entertainment?
When it comes to cockfighting, who are these "experts" who claim that these chickens are "trained" to fight? What real proof is there that connects drugs, gangs, prostitution and gambling to this activity? Just to go Vegas, it's all there. Raising and fighting game birds requires money: money for feed and vitamins, money for building supplies for the pens, money for items to provide their chickens the best care; WIC or EBT benefits cannot be used to purchase these items.
The so-called "barbarians" who participate in this activity are working individuals who have jobs and pay taxes. If there are more than 50,000 cockfighters in California, then just imagine the money the state could produce if it was made legal and each of those 50,000 people had to purchase a yearly permit to fight: a $100 permit times 50,000 people equals $5 million or a $500 permit times 50,000 equals $25 million. Prior to being banned in Louisiana, cockfighting was a $150 million industry.
