I never realized cockfighting was so sophisticated. From the photographs, it looks as if the prized cocks have their own elaborately decorated hutches. I can't figure out what the double-beam balance is for, though.

At least in bull fighting they actually eat the animal after it's killed. I guess they don't think it's manly to eat dead cocks. (Although in some cultures they do eat bull's cocks.)

Thanks for supporting the thread, Sentinel. I'm really disappointed in the DR's lack of interest in illegal cocks.

I thought long and hard about posting it. Obviously, the thought of two bloody cocks battling to the death is too hairy a subject for our fellow posters to grasp.

My cock's a lover not a fighter
