Cockfighting: California seizure 'largest in US history'

17 May 2017 US & Canada

More than 7,000 birds have been seized during what is believed to be the largest cockfighting bust in US history, officials have said.

Ten people were arrested after police officers and other personnel surrounded the remote property in a canyon in northern Los Angeles County.

As well as the birds, firearms and drugs were found in the area.

Cockfighting, which is illegal in every state in the US, involves two birds fighting each other to the death.

As well as the birds, a number of mobile fighting pit and "hundreds of slashers" - which are attached to the animals feet during fights - were discovered on the site, along with syringes and steroids.

2. It's is sickening that this exists!

What is it about rednecks' need for blood "sports"?

Note also that women have nothing to do with this sadism.
