The bottom line is cockfighting is a very easy target so they are going after it on the way to there real agenda. It is allowed only in two states Louisiana and New Mexico. Cockfighting has been illegal in many states for a long time. Recently they have pursued the issue in the southern part of the United States and been victorious on most occasions. They tried real hard in Louisiana and failed, but they will be back because the spotlight is on them. People it's time to open our eyes. All the hunters, fisherman, cattlemen, horseman, Christians, the average animal lover that thinks they find a good home for all the stray pets and even the concerned parent could not support these groups after visiting these websites. You may not agree with cockfighting, but the cockfighters I know would never stoop to levels this low.
NOW OF COURSE WE KNOW THERE IS BUT ONE STATE WITH THE RIGHT TO FIGHT GAMECOCKS.

I am not concerned with the crazies. Cockfighting has been outlawed in New Mexico. You don't dress a chicken to fight. It just ain't right.

The roosters we fight are NOT your regular yard chicken, if you knew anything about gamefowl you would know that! But its ok for you to dress your chicken to eat for your pleasure! Why not be so hypocritical and stop eating cow, chickens and other animals, you can survive being a vegetarian which is what PETA AND the Humane Society want people to do! If you have the right to have cows, Pigs, chickens slaughteres in the horrific mannor they do, who are you to say anything to me because I watch a chicken fight for my pleasure?

Remember, you are not dressing these chickens to eat, you are dressing them for reasons of violence. I am not opposed to you eating all the meat you want, it is inappropriate to attach weapons to game fowl, cows, or anything else you are to watch fight to it's bloody death as you do these. How can watching all that bloody fighting be pleasurable? It seems creepy to me.

You are posting in Louisiana forums. That's where I post. It makes no sense for me to read and post in New Mexico forums. My interests lie here. New Mexico has banned the bloody barbaric sport for a reason and I firmly believe it will be only a short time for it to be outlawed here too. If you wish to resort to name calling, it explains your position better. I am not CHICKEN. I am expressing my opposition to the violence of the "gearing" up these chickens for such bloodspill.

OHHHH so its ok for you to name call, but not I. The reason cock fighting is being banned period is because PETA and the Human society has billions of dollars to lobby or politicians, many who have never been to a cock fight nor have they ever been on a game farm. PETA and other humane grps have a agenda, far past cock fighting maybe you need to read up on them. Those people who do not like cock fighting need not watch, the chicken is not an endangered fowl. What do you gain by outlawing gamecock fighting? NOTHING!,but the satisfaction that you made someone do what YOU think is best. Hell the chicken doesnt even win, what happens to the billions of game fowl still alive?, PETA says they will kill them,?, WTF, If you outlaw this the fighting rooster breed will become extinct, do you not understand these are not your regular yard chicken that wlaks around peeking at the ground they are fighters, many will kil to just to kill, we do NOT train them to do it, its their nature! All I do is condition the rooster to be at its peek physical ability to give the rooster the best chance to fight its strongest fight and win. 90% of the roosters I raise do not even make the derby`s only the best!

Many cockers are probably out taking care of their 1000`s of roosters, it is a sun up to down job. Many cockers are simple folk country folk and dont waste their time on the computer. But never fear, they are very involved politically today and doing their own lobbying, many politicians in the parishs where cock fighting derby`s take place will support their communities are they will not be re-elected. I agree cockers are a minority, but that does not give the majority a right to force its will upon them, the Bill of Rights and the Constitution is all about protecting the minority from being opressed by the majority.

You opposed to the death of the game fowl and the mannor it is done, You need to do a little research and see how the cows, pigs and chickens are treated and slaughtered for you pleasure of taste. I say my rooster have a equal chance ,but those numbered to be slaughtered for human cosumption have NO chance at all. If you ok the slaughter of cows, pigs and chicken, then why are you so opposed against game cock fighting where the playing field is equal?

Here are a few quotes from the people that are funding your crusade and their agenda.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PeTA)
" The cat, like the dog, must disappear... We should cut the domestic cat free from our dominance by neutering, neutering and more neutering, until our pathetic version of the cat ceases to exist."--John Bryant,(PeTA,)
"Let us allow the dog to disappear from our brick and concrete jungles--from our firesides, from the leather nooses and chains by which we enslave it."--John Bryant (peta)
Question to PETA Outreach Coordinator Susan Rich: "If you were aboard a lifeboat with a baby and a dog, and the boat capsized, which would you rescue?" Rich's answer: "I wouldn't know for sure...I might choose the human baby or I might choose the dog." (Steve Kane Show WIOD-AM Radio Miami, FL)
"Never buy wool again. Choose only cotton, synthetics and other non-animal fibers. The sheep are embarrassed when they are shorn, sometimes they are nicked during the process, and they get cold afterward." ( PeTA News )
" In a perfect world, all other than human animals would be free of human interference, and dogs and cats would be part of the ecological scheme." --PeTA's statement on Companion Animals
DAN MATHEWS, Celebrity Recruiter for PETA "The fur industry will be the first domino to fall. Next in line are hunting, farming and biomedical research. So what if we put a few businesses under?"-Dan Mathews, PeTA
"We're at war, and we'll do what we need to win." (USA Today, September 3, 1991)
"We have a lazy, sick society. People bring diseases on themselves." (New York Magazine, November 28, 1994)"
On the consequences of stopping animal research: "Don't get the diseases in the first place, schmo. " (USA Today, July 27, 1994)
INGRID NEWKIRK, FOUNDER, PEOPLE FOR THE ETHICAL TREATMENT OF ANIMALS (PETA)
"The bottom line is that people don't have the right to manipulate or to breed dogs and cats ... If people want toys they should buy inanimate objects. If they want companionship they should seek it with their own kind."
"In the end, I think it would be lovely if we stopped this whole notion of pets altogether." (Newsday, Feb. 21, 1988)
"Animal liberationists do not separate out the human animal, so there is no rational basis for saying that a human being has special rights. A rat is a pig is a dog is a boy. They're all mammals." (INGRID NEWKIRK FOUNDER)
"As the surplus of cats and dogs declined, eventually companion animals would be phased out, and we return to a more symbiotic relationship--enjoyment at a distance."--Ingrid Newkirk
"Six million Jews died in concentration camps, but six billion broiler chickens will die this year in slaughterhouses." (Ingrid Newkirk)
"Humans have grown like a cancer. We're the biggest blight on the face of the earth." (Reader's Digest, June, 1990)
Meat eating is "primitive, barbaric, and arrogant." (Ingrid Newkirk)
"I am not a morose person, but I would rather not be here. I don't have any reverence for life, only for the entities themselves. I would rather see a blank space where I am. This will sound like fruitcake stuff again but at least I wouldn't be harming anything." (Ingrid Newkirk)
"Probably everything we do is a publicity stunt...We are not here to gather members, to please, to placate, to make friends. We're here to hold the radical line." (Ingrid Newkirk)(USA Today, September 3, 1991)
"If my father had a heart attack, it would give me no solace at all to know his treatment was first tried on a dog." (Washington Post, Nov. 13, 1983)
"I know it's illegal [trespassing], but I don't think it's wrong."(Ingrid Newkirk)
"Pet ownership is an absolutely abysmal situation brought about by human manipulation." (Ingrid Newkirk)

"When I hear of anyone walking into a lab and walking out with animals, my heart sings." ("To Market, To Market," Los Angeles Times Magazine, March 22, 1992, in which Newkirk condones law-breaking Animal Liberation Front actions and promotes her soon-to-be-published History of the ALF.)
"You don't have to own squirrels and starlings to get enjoyment from them....One day, we would like an end to pet shops and the breeding of animals.[Dogs] would pursue their natural lives in the wild....They would have full lives, not wasting at home for someone to come home in the evening and pet them and then sit there and watch TV." (Ingrid Newkirk)
"If Vice President Al Gore advocated killing rabbits to see if women are pregnant and called it a step forward for science, we'd all think he'd gone 'round the bend. We don't need to do that sort of thing anymore, we'd say. We have better, kinder ways." - Ingrid Newkirk in The Washington Times August 29, 1999
ALEX PACHECO, CHAIRMAN, PEOPLE FOR THE ETHICAL TREATMENT OF ANIMALS (PETA)
"Arson, property destruction, burglary and theft are 'acceptable crimes' when used for the animal cause."
"We feel that animals have the same rights as a retarded human child" (Ingrid Newkirk)
Other PeTA quotes
"I'm an insulin-dependent diabetic. Twice a day I take synthetically manufactured insulin that still contains some animal products--and I have no qualms about it." --PeTA rep Mary Beth Sweetland
On the issue of PETA's 'meat causes impotence' billboard: "Many men care more about their manhood than their health. We're appealing to them on their terms ... hitting below the belt as it were," Bruce Friedrich, PETA's vegetarian campaign coordinator, told Reuters.
"About seven years ago, I grew a beard, wore my hair long, abandoned my shoes and refused to bathe more than once per week."
"We do things in a very different way. But I understand their frustration. The real crime is that millions of animals are being tortured and killed." PeTA spokeswoman Lisa Lange, refusing to condemn an Apr. 12 break-in claimed by the Animal Liberation Front at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, in which animals were released, labs were vandalized, and notes and videos were stolen, with damages estimated at up to $4 million. Important research was set back on Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, cerebral palsy and cancer.(New Scientist, Apr. 17, 1999)

Oh course, this roosters are trained to fight. I've personally witnessed this. And if these fowl become extinct, it will not be by the hands of barbarians who attached gaffes to their tiny feet to cause injury and death. In the wild, no one attaches these tools. It is a disgusting sport - one which will be outlawed not because of the money that Peta has to to lobby politicians but because it is a barbaric backward sport which needs to be eliminated from our present day society. Sorry Nonsense, you will have to fight a new sport to participate in. What about these gaffes to the feet of domesticated cats and encourage them to kill. Of course, don't send all of them to death - only your very best!

They are both atrocious. The mentality that it's okay to fight chickens to their death is the same mentality that leads men to compare the size of their gonads in wars, barroom fights and general ugliness. Or do you think it is what men do naturally anyway and there should be no consequences for that either?

Intersting PeTA facts
PETA complained about the name of Fishkill, New York, saying that the town should be called "Fishsave". Town officials pointed out that "kill" was a Dutch name for "stream" (as with Schuykill,NY, and Vermont's Battenkill river).
When ALF member Roger Troen was convicted of burglary and arson at the University of Oregon, in which $36,000 in damage was inflicted, PeTA paid Troen's $27.000 legal fees and his $34,900 fine. Gary Thorud testified under oath that "we were illegally funding this individual with money solicited for other causes, and Ingrid was using that money, bragging to the staff that she had spent $25,000 on the case." Deposition of Gary Thorud, Berosini v. PeTA, at 49-50.
A PeTA consultant won control of the Toronto Humane Society, endowed with $14 million, last fall through a proxy fight. One of her employees recently was arrested for possession of explosives and weapons, and vandalizing a restaurant that served chicken ... David Arnold, "Fight Looms over Animal Rights Group," Boston Globe
PeTA has a paid staff of more than eighty people and claims to have 400,000 members, but actually has only three. In 1987, PeTA's three-member board of directors (Newkirk, Pacheco, and Kim Stallwood) voted themselves the only "members" of the organization. By doing so, they converted their "members" into customer/contributors and themselves into a multimillion-dollar partnership.
The group reported an annual budget of $10.5 million in 1991, with more than $9 million coming from contributions and most of the rest from sale of PeTA merchandise. That's enough money to save an awful lot of animals. But PeTA does not use one single cent of its money to purchase wildlife habitat, find homes for strays, spay and neuter pets, or research alternative biomedical or wildlife management techniques.
Rodney Coronado, a member of the Animal Liberation Front, pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 57 months in prison for the destruction of an animal diagnostics research lab at the University of California, Davis in April, 1987 (total damage estimates:$4.5 million). PETA sent $ 45,200 to Coronado's 'support committee,' which was a sum 15 times greater than what PETA spent on animal shelters nationwide in all of that year.

Do you think tying little metal blades to the feet of this chickens and gathering around with your freinds to watch the bloody fight to the end of your best and favorites compares to the research on important diseases such as Alzheimers or cancer? Please post the results of your research so we can all monitor the progress you are making in the battle against these diseases.
