Cockfighting is a blood sport in which two roosters bred specifically for aggression stand in a small ring from head to toe and are encouraged to fight to the death. Although illegal in all 50 states, cockfights continue across the country, in all kinds of communities, and among all kinds of people.
In organized cockfights, the natural fighting instincts of roosters are exaggerated by breeding, feeding, training, steroids, and vitamins. A bird may go through several months of training before fighting, which may mean running long obstacle courses (and even treadmills) and practicing fights with other roosters. Just before a fight, most of the bird’s feathers are plucked and the breeder cuts off the animal’s baleen, the ridges under the beak so that the opponent cannot pluck them.Read More
