    I can't believe cockfighting was still legal in the 21st century...

    It's chickens for christ sake.....you eat them if they loose or feed them if they win.

    It's not like a bear and cat fight which use to happen a lot.

    You didn't even know about it 'til this thread. Just forget about it and go hug a tree......

    So chasing down a chicken and ringing it's neck isn't?

    How do you think farm animals get to your table?
    Somebody has to kill it.

    Ever been hunting, with a gun?.....no didn't think so.
    Animals just don't keel over on to your plate, they have to be
    killed......humanly...look it it up it's purely about human feelings
    not the animals.

    Someone left the door open.

    And you eat hens, or at least most of us do, not cocks, unless they are capons bred for their size.

    I await the castration defence. ;)

    I'm saying what's the difference whether or not you ring it's neck
    or it does what comes naturally to roosters?

    Blame the rooster it's the one doing the killing.

    So is it also the dogs fault for killing the other dog in a dog fight when it is the human training that behavior into them?

    The difference you have already mentioned. Humanly. Ringing the neck would be a rather quick death. Where being speared and cut by razor sharp blades over and over again till you bleed out, doesn't sound to humanly does it?

    Last time I checked, shooting an animal in hopes of a quick death is also a humanly thing to do. If you don't kill it in the first shot, once on scene with the animal a second shot to the head usually puts the animal out of it's misery.

    Last I checked, the farmer didn't put razors on the cow's hooves and put in into a death cage match with another cow while a bunch of backwards ass people watched and gambled on the outcome.

    Yes, I've been hunting with a gun. Frankly, one of the most boring days I've ever spent.

    Since you have no problem putting animals in a circle to fight to the death, lets put you in a ring to fight another human to the death.

    You shouldn't have a problem with that....

    If you don't drop it with the first shot you track it as it bleeds to
    death......it's done legally all the time. Life is cruel, just be
    thankful your not the one having to do the dirty work so you can
    have that nice turkey, or whatever, dinner.

    90% or more of you people would starve to death if you suddenly
    had to feed yourself and family.......

    You could put all the blades you wanted on cow but you won't get
    them to fight. Cocks on the other hand will kill each other without
    the blades it just takes longer....

    You'd starve to death if you had to feed yourself but your perfectly
    happy to let someone else do it for you......and then turn around
    and complain about how they did it....grow up. It's a big and tuff
    world we live on.......

    Exactly, it is a quick death. Not a long drawn out, inhuman, bleed-out, cut to shreds death. When was the last time you at a roster from a cock fight? yeah I don't think you have. Or maybe you have, given your location. I don't know.

    Time is relative and you still have to kill for the meat you eat, your
    just letting someone else to the dirty work.

    Chickens just don't jump into your arms you have to chase it and
    catch it. Do you think the chicken enjoys that?......oh wait I guess
    you do since you think it humane.
