Very Angry Birds: Over 3,000 Rescued In Cock-Fighting Bust

'Operation Angry Birds' Takes Down N.Y. Cockfighting Ring

More than 70 people were detained and over 3,000 chickens seized in the state's largest cockfighting ring bust. Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman announced Sunday evening that his Organized Crime Task Force executed the largest cockfighting take-down in New York's history and one of the largest nationwide. This is the first known investigation where the crime of Prohibition of Animal Fighting was enforced in three New York counties simultaneously.

What is wrong with chickens battling it out? We kill poor bulls in an unfair fight.

Fighting birds are always killed, because they are not considered "adoptable". Hopefully theirs is a quick and relatively painless end, unlike the suffering they would do if left to fight in these brutal, senseless and unjustifiable spectacles. And hopefully all of the people involved in this will receive the maximum sentences/fines. It's the least that can be done.

Protected from what? Hungry humans? Billions, yes billions of animals are killed so some human can eat them. Are you an animal eater?

Mean while the slaughter houses of the world operate 24 /seven to make a dollar. And that's all OK. If you aren't a vegetarian you are a hypocrite.

If they think that is something, they should see the cock fighting that goes on in Cock County Tennessee.
