Indian Man Killed by His Own Rooster on the Way to a Cockfight

Breitbart: Saripalli Chanavenkateshwaram Rao’s rooster cut his throat with the blades attached to its feet on the way to an illegal cockfighting event.

While cockfighting has been illegal in India for 60 years, the inhumane practice lives on — to the detriment of both people and animals. Gauri Maulekhi, a trustee for India’s People for Animals organization, expressed her frustration:

The offenses have been made very clear and explained to the district and state authorities, but they choose to turn a blind eye towards it. It is not just for entertainment that these animals are made to fight, but it is [also] due to the heavy betting and gambling that goes on in the garb of these events.

  1. Sure this is history repeating itself in similar situations shotguns, cars or poisons have been used. One less mouth to feed in India won’t help much.

  2. I’m sorry I’m having a hard time buying this story.

    Something I never understood and in my youth I went to cockfights, is why they put their roosters in slasher fights. For one, the only slasher fight I ever witnessed is gross and it’s nothing more than the luck of the draw, not whether one rooster is a bigger bad ass than the other. A lot of revenue is lost when your rooster dies, the idea is for your rooster to win more fights, which makes the value of his offspring more. In a slasher fight 9 times out of 10 both roosters end up dying.
    In just a regular old cock fight, even the losing rooster often lives, because the rooster getting his ass kicked will run away.
