Stop Animal Fighting

Pro-cockfighting article-NY Daily News

NOTE:  the roosters referred to in the article were killed both due to their injuries and because they were trained too violently to be to be rehabilitated.  In any case this person's position is outrageous and ill-informed - ADOW

"Death be not poultry"
Neil Steinberg, NY DAILY NEWS
Feb. 13, 2005

  So the cops find 15 cockfighting roosters in a Bronx basement last week.  Lest the animals face the cruelty of the ring, the ASPCA - it stands for American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, by the way - seizes them and kills them.  I guess nobody can be cruel to a dead rooster.  Still, I don't know about you, but if I were a rooster, I'd rather take my chances against an opponent in the sawdust pit than face the fatal mercy of the ASPCA."
