Cock Fighting

Online Cockfighting is a popular online game in the world, defined as a brutal fight between male chickens (roosters), in which people make a bet on the result of the fight.

This game usually stops when one of the roosters is killed by the other to death. Razor-sharp knives which is called gaffs, up to 3 and 1/2 inches long, are plugged into the roosters’ legs and cause deadly injury to the opponents. Often doped up on stimulants, the roosters are tormented into the anger by being held face-to-face and are after that dropped into a small pit to struggle against each other. The metal weapons which are worn by the roosters sink deep into the roosters’ flesh, in order that the handlers often need to pull them apart some times in a fight — whenever one rooster is not strong enough to pull free. Roosters who lose the fights are often known nothing more than trash and are thrown in “dead piles”. Dead or dying, they are just thrown away.
