A bell rings. Two roosters approach each other from opposite ends of a pen. Egged on by the curses and cries of the drunken spectators, they claw and bite at each other’s bodies until only one remains breathing in the bloody enclosure. It is the lucky one. It will live to fight again.
Currently only fighting of four-legged animals (namely dogs) is a felony in Kentucky. Please contact your legislators at 1-800-372-7181, and ask them to sponsor or support legislation to make cockfighting a felony so we can stop this cruel, barbaric practice.
