This is a guy who got exactly what he deserved. Sometimes bad things happen to bad people.

Let this be a warning to you, gentlemen. Playing with your cock can be hazardous to your health.

Fatally stabbed in the calf? By a rooster?

I'm going to guess Mr. Ochoa will be the United State's lone "stabbed to death by a rooster" fatality in 2011.

I spent the night in Earlimart as a boy at a friends house. Crack city.

I dated a couple of sisters whose dad raised fighter roosters... crack chicks.

There’s a TV crime drama episode similar to this, just not sure what show I saw it on.

Yeah, I know. Sorry about that. I couldn’t resist. See, this is what happens when you break the first two rules of Cockfight Club. The first rule of Cockfight Club is you do not talk about your cock. The second rule of Cockfight Club is you do not talk about your cock.

No, but it should be.

Here in South Carolina there is a huge illegal cockfighting underground.

I’m not a farmer but maybe someone here will do the math. Even I know that if you put two roosters in the same barnyard, they’re gonna fight. That is, until the losing rooster’s instinct tells him it’s time to break off and haul @ss. No razor spurs, no fight to the death, the dominant bird wins and the fight is over.

Fighting cocks are equipped with deadly razors and they fight until one of the opponents is dead. I suppose putting two unequipped birds in the ring and watching the loser run away to maybe fight again another day isn’t as much sport as the lethal contest.

I could be wrong. Thoughts?

Quite strange. Wonder how the calf is doing- doesn’t say whether it was a bull calf or a heifer.

Seriously, though...if he was stabbed in his lower leg, and died 2 hours later at a hospital...wouldn’t a tourniquet applied on scene or early on have saved his life?

Something I’m missing. I wouldn’t think you’d have the blades strapped on unless ready to fight. Test-fit perhaps.

Bad Karma- eventually the chickens come home to roost.

I believe this isn't the first time in the US during the past ten years that a fighting Rooster has killed the handler. Even the TV program, 1000 Ways to Die had a segment about this.

Same with bulls, stud horses, etc. Setting two animals up to fight on purpose is cruel. They do it in nature, and set a pecking order on the farm, but orchestrating it for sport is wrong.

I know, when I was a kid we did it with roosters, grasshoppers, etc. But, for entertainment or gambling either way, blood sport is evil.

A bird must continue to attack. Many dead birds have won cockfights when the opposing chicken ran.

Although this breed of rooster hates others of his kind, the Shamo is unusually friendly to humans, often following them around and begging for attention. They sure look intimidating.
