Hispanic promoters of cruel, cock-fighting extravaganzas were arrested in a massive, February 9th raid at a Plattekill, New York farm about 90 minutes from New York City, the liberal bastion of freedom and amnesty for illegals! (1) The very large cock-fighting ring was headed up by Manuel and Jesus Cruz.
According to the Ulster County Sheriffs office which organized the raid, the enormous operation involved some 6,000 birds, all bred to kill for money! According to media reports, this cock fighting ring had operated for years under the guise of a live poultry farm, yet nothing was done until recently to expose the horrific abuse of animals. (2) ASPCA response team spokesman Tim Rickey believes this may be the LARGEST cock-fighting arrest in American history, adding it was the largest operation of this type weve been involved in!
A CiR informant said the suspects taken in the arrest staged events in three other locations, entertaining cock-fighting enthusiasts...

All bred to act like uber roosters. Cock fighting is adding an arms race component to an act of nature.
My kinfolk from southeast Oklahoma were into chicken-fighting big time. The small town, from my memory in the fifties through the seventies at least, every other house had its cages in the back with fighting chickens, it was a big deal. There were no Mexicans around in those days. As of the seventies the sheriff would still look the other way.
Since then they’ve tightened the law there and while they may still raise them for fighting, they have to go over to Louisiana to fight them.
Cock fighting has been part of this country since Europeans first arrived here.
While I’m all for protecting American culture from the multiculturalist hoards, cock fighting is as American as apple pie.
How is this substantially different than Ice Hockey?
... apart from feathers, pucks and claws of course.
Wake me up when someone tries to have a bullfight
Not really...cock fighting has been around for at least three hundred years, and it is still popular in Appalachia and the rural South.
“Hispanic promoters of cruel, cock-fighting extravaganzas were arrested...”
There’s something racist in there. Has to be....
The author has obviously never been to Eastern Kentucky or South Louisiana.
The thing I don’t understand is why this disturbs activists when the 18 wheelers on the highway with 20,000 chickens in boxes doesn’t.
Thank goodness....All we do is suck humans out of the womb.
Worried over chickens...the loser gets eaten.
Ya starting to see a pattern of total ignorance and stupidity?
Mexicans also love bull fighting...Ya see how the Mexican audiences down there react to the brutal cruelty of these animals?
“all bred to kill for money!
All bred to act like uber roosters. Cock fighting is adding an arms race component to an act of nature.”
Not only that, rooster eggs don’t make a very good omelet.
Can’t eat a dead fighting cock...too lean and tough—it’s like gnawing on hard rubber.
Remember Chicken George from Roots?
Losers were 50 cent a half in the PI
.too lean and toughits like gnawing on hard rubber.
Yes they are, but San Magoos were only a nickel.
My omelets are made from duck eggs.
Hillary Clinton’s major accomplishment was getting cock fighting deemed illegal in Oklahoma and Louisiana.

You want to see brutal cruelty against animals, take a look at nature itself.
How do you think a gazelle feels when it is being eaten alive by a tiger?
Man having dominion over the animals leaves room for a lot of leeway.
There are many things other people do to animals that I wouldn't do. Eating veal, for one example, and cockfighting or bullfighting, for two more.
That doesn't mean that I would criminalize any person for engaging in such activity.
Just because something offends my sensibilities doesn't mean it should be illegal for everyone.
If someone decides to pursue happiness by raising veal or fighting bulls, I won't be their judge.
I'll express my opinion, I'll try to stigmatize their behavior as uncivilized, but I won't fall into the trap of criminalizing what they enjoy, because I don't want them to criminalize me using similar authoritarian logic.
Just thought it bears repeating.
I thought it was a European thing...like fox hunting. Besides, isn’t dog fighting populars here?

I certainly am if you really think bull fighting came from Mexico.
henry the VIII did cock fighting. Hey folks, we eat chickens all the time and what we do to them really aint nice—Roosters like to fight and will. They might as well fight before they go to the stew pot. Now Dog Fights, I’m against, and I don’t cotton to Bullfights much (sometimes the Bull gets to rip out the guts of his tormentors—and that is cool in a Karmic sort of way)—but Chickens—they are not people—they are not even mammels. Chickens are not Man’s Best Friend. They been fightin’ Chickens since Roman Times—maybe more. So have fun, and fry up the losers! maybe they should have a combo—Chicken Restaurant, Chicken fighting ring, where if you lose money—you can eat your chicken hearted loser bird for lunch.
cock fighting is big here in the Philippines.
Often you see the cocks with their foot on a leash tied under a small roof outside (because they are aggressive). How aggressive are they? Well, the neighborhood dogs seem to avoid them.
Isn’t it ironic that a sport that lets chickens be chickens is “evil”, while the animal lovers insist that chickens be left in “open”, not cages, or (best) free range chickens? They don’t seem to realize that there is a reality behind the phrase “lowest on the pecking order”...
So if a free range chicken fights and kills another, no problem. If a man raises the chicken and fights him as a sport, horror....
but they do make a good chicken stew.
Cock fighting is said to be the first spectator sport at 6,000 years old and likely came to the new world with the Europeans.
Down in the Valley.Posted: 02.24.2014 .Authorities are investigating an illegal gambling operation after discovering a cockfighting ring that was being run at a home just north of Weslaco.
It all happened at a rural home at 1930 Mile 12 North on Saturday afternoon.
Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office deputies were called to the home for suspicious activity at 2:23 p.m. Saturday.
Deputies arrived at the home and discovered 60 people at a cockfighting arena.
Investigators found roosters, syringes, a betting board, a concession stand and cash in envelopes.
All the spectators were released without being cited because the rooster fight had not started yet.
Deputies identified the property owner and he allegedly confessed to organizing the cockfighting event.
No charges have been filed at this time but Hidalgo County Sheriff Lupe Treviño reported that deputies are gathering more information to properly file them.
