Fight My Cock.

by Leonard

Looks like we're in the news again here in Canada and not for good reason (again). Turns out the big cockfighting bust in Vancouver has been traced to the Philippines. When this news broke I had a feeling it was Filipinos, but part of me hoped it was a Michael Vick-type character. Just with birds.

Anyways, its not so cut and dry. The implicated say that they simply breed the birds and then send them to the Philippines where cockfighting is an age-old tradition. They claim that there is no way that they could be sanctioning actual cockfights (which is illegal here) because cockfighting rings (or Sabongan) are huge and there'd be a lot of blood all over the place. According to them, they are being prosecuted because of "assumption". It's not illegal to breed and export animals.

What do you think about cockfighting? Savage embarrassment or Cultural Tradition?

And do you think these guys are getting the shit end of the stick?
