<quoted text> 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?
But you don't see a group of crazies pitting cow against another cow with barbs to kill each other. And you don't see a deer hunter running after a deer with a buck knife slashing and slashing to make more blood cause it's fun. They EAT the damn things. Did your Mother ever tell you NOT to play with your food? Your pleasure comes from watching an animal suffer...much like the serial killers did when they were young....killing small animals. You think it's ok, because YOU are not right in the head. You have talked yourself into believing that it's all in good sport. They will ban it, and you will be unhappy. You might want to find another hobby.....like jousting! What a sorry excuse for a human!

<quoted text>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!
You aint been no where to witness anyone training a game cock to fight! that is a out right lie, yes we do condition a bird to be at its top physical condition where its chances are the best to win, but the chicken is born to fight! Your being stupid, with the cat crap!

What a dumba$$ you are, What does it materr in this world about a freaking chicken? Us humans kill each other every day, millions of babies are killed a year and you worry about a souless chicken and what it feels and how it dies, only with cock fighting though, you dont care how a cow or a pig or poultry is killed that you eat! Because thats ok it satisfies your pleasure of taste. I am a very loving person, no not sick in the head, you dont have any idea who I am. I have savedhuman and nono-human lives, I am realistic I know the differance between a human and a freaking animal and I choose that HUMANS over ride an animals or a tree life any day!

Yes I have. It was the most repulsive thing I have ever seen. I've seen the weights and the forced running of these roosters on slanted board to increase the muscle mass in their legs so they can be stronger than the opponent and inflict more harm. I've seen the metal gaffes which are so dangerous even the handlers wore protection not to be cut accidentally. I'm been to hell and back. These men are void of feelings toward other living things. I've seen men bet their rent money on such stupidity. How can that help the economy? These guys can even afford their own homes and they are betting and often times losing the rent money. Yep, no wonder LA is the shame of the country. We are on the bottom of every lists that measure success in the US. Fathers can't take their kids to the doctor because the paycheck was gambled on which rooster would kill the other.

Man that must make you feel proud that you are a proponent for such a violent and poverty causing sport. Why is LA such a poor state if cockfighting is so profitable? To hear you talk you would think all you barbaric cockfighters would be rich. It's still legal for now. Maybe these bettors will be able to pay their rent and keep more money in their own pockets when cockfighting is deeper in the swamps, right?

Let's see, I'm a dumbass because I am opposed to the barbaric nature of this sport. How can you sit and watch these poor birds main and kill each other much less participate in it? Maybe you are not reading my posts. I don't eat meat. I love vegetables however. If you do not torture an animal and "kill it kindly" to feed your family than I'm not opposed. If you are torturing an animal, bird or other living thing for sport then I think it says a heck of a lot about you. And none of what it says to me is healthy.

But you still fail to understand that you are a crazy soon to be serial killer because you ENJOY the blood and guts of the kill. You are nuts and need to be put down with the rest of the looney tunes in this world. Now go kill a few rodents and we'll see ya on the 10 o'clock news. Crazy old coot. I don't care what a freaking chicken feels, I care about some bonehead that gets his rocks off playing with animals to see them bleed. Dude, you need a nice padded cell.

Oops, please don't tell your chickens how loving you are!

And I don't wish to offend you but I think anyone who enjoys watching the bloodspill to the point of creating and attaching weapons to roosters legs for the express purpose of maining and killing each other is as you call it "sick in the head". That's my 2 Cents. Even if the economy benefitted from such an attrocious sport, it would never be justified in my eyes. Can't we find means that are legitimate in the eyes of others to boost our economy? God Bless the New Mexicans! We will be next.

I have never heard of weights being put on a rooster for building muscles, there is no way that will work, the work out on the slanted board is a old cockers conditioning work out, and is obsolete to modern cockery, though many old cockers still believe it works. Those tecnics you describe are not training the rooster to fight ,but conditioning them to have more wind to fight at their peek, its like a boxer training or a marathon runner working out. The gaffs are sharp, I have never seen handlers wear protection though, most handlers are very experienced not anyone can just jump in the pit and handle a gamecock in a fight, it takes years to master the profession. YOU BEEN TO HELL AND BACK, with cock fighting, what are you a women? Bull, Mnay cockers have other animals and take very good care of them, just because a man knows that animals are just that animals and puts them in that place doesnt mean their cold blooded killers and a risk to humans. YES, many people gamble their monies away, but that is a personal problem and one that should be delt with professionally, but in Louisiana gambling is legal and there are many who gamble on all sorts of things, you cant blame game cock fighting on that. I beg to differ with you, though I am from Texas I love Louisiana and it is not the shame of the United States, if you dislike it here move. Yes, cock fighting is profitable but it can not support the whole Staes economy, lol, I know now you are a women you are way to over dramatic to be a male. If cock fighting is banned the gambler will go to the casino`s are the horse races or bet on the professional sports, it is a personal problem, cock fighting is and gambling is not the reason Louisiana is a poor state, Louisiana is a poor state because it used to be a agriculture state and most farmers have been run out of business, only the port big cities do real well in Louisiana, and thats not saying much. Many of the people of Louisiana leave to go to bigger cities in other states for the big money, not many people enjoy the country life any more. There are many cockers who have done very well in this business and have built monster game fowl farms, I know you cant know much about cockery because if you did you would know many cockers have 100`s of acres of land and have spent 100`s of thousands of dollars on them and the keeping of their stock. Your arguments against game cock fights is weak ,you gain nothing by out lawing it, you wont stop gambling because there is other mens of gambling that is legal in Louisiana and gambling does bring in Multi-Millions of dollars, and you wont save any Game fowl, because this breed of fowl will become extinct. So whats your purpose to have it banned?

Forcing? How can I force my beliefs and morals onto you? My voice speaks loudly and to many and we, in my group, will continue the fight. This barbaric sport has got to go. We did a great job in New Mexico and will succeed in LA also. It's just a matter of time.

You would make an exception when it comes to killing me? Oh well. You really are communicating how sensible you are. And I do have a right and strong will to fight for the banning of tortue of any animals not used for food.

Nope not many cockers, as you call them have 100's of thousand of dollars. I know about most.

If you think being called a woman is an insult you are further eroding your credibility. You called me many names and I'm not insulted. If someone of character called me those names, I might think twice but your name calling is expected.

STOP THE INSECTICIDE! One million ants are slaughtered every month by careless missteps, cruel young children with magnifying glasses, and newspapers wielded in ignorance and fear. Feeling bugged? To learn what you can do to help stop the insecticide, or to sponsor an orphaned pupae, call 1-800-555-PETI. People for the Ethical Treatment of Insects.
Are you guilty of this cruel act? maybe you might have killed a few when you were doing your garden.
