I don't know what they meant by animal cruelty. Do they mean killing of animals like Chicken(Fowl), Pig, Cow, Goat, Deer, Cat, Dog, etc. How long is the Law has been in force prohibiting the killing of these animals? Is that law has been implemented fairly. If it is, how come I can still see a lot of pork, beef meat and chicken in the market like Dominicks, Jewel Osco, K-mART, etc. You know, the killing of these animals like the one you see in the market is far more brutal than killing a rooster.The Pig, the Cow and the chiclen were killed in the slaughter house, peeled-off the skin, hang, cut into pieces and then displayed into the public. Guess what is next...they're looking for a good profit. If the profit wasn't good, they say consumer spending in the agricultural products is slowing down and they don't want that. They want to improve consumer spending so that more killing of animals will occur.

they complain it's cruel but i would much rather be a game rooster thena cornish cross. the hsus needs to be a little more worried about the colonel sanders than a game rooster who usal lives a long healthy 2 year life with the top care rather confined to tiny pens with thousands of others for only an 8 week period of life before being sent to slaugter for our enjoyment to! but opinions are like butt holes everyones got one!

It is amazing how we worry about stupid things.The first place is they always say the usa is for peoples rights.They harp on cockfighting but you can set out poison for mice that takes days of pain before it dies.You can set a trap that cuts the air off untill the mouse dies.You can shoot out a coon untill it falls into a pack of dogs and they rip it into and skin it out and throw away the meat.You can shoot a deer with an arrow which takes several hours to die.You can trap animals with steel traps and this is all okay.When they stop cockfighting they then will turn to something else.You can buy a peice of property and you can only do on it what they will let you.Where is our fredom.Our goverment has let arsenic treated wood to be used for our kids to play on and let toys painted with lead in this country.I think with gas prices and everything else this country is facing they need to worry about more important things.

legalize it!!!! they may as well, ITS GONNA HAPPEN ANYWAYS>......DuHH id like to see a peta worker try and go in a pen and cuddle with a gamecock, lol it would be hilarious, these birds are naturally aggressive and have been bred to fight for over 200 years in kentucky, so does peta want them EXTINCT?????, cuz your not gonna breed the aggression out of them, they should read some history before they judge things!!!

I live in Kentucky. I raise gamecocks. I think they should make it legal to fight them.

I feel that diversity is an important part of our great Country, I also believe that trying to make criminals out of law abiding citizens because they do different things such as 'cock fighting' is not embracing diversity we can learn many things from people that are different than us we can not learn by trying to make every one like us, if that was the case everyone would be cock fighters

tonight may 5 2007, there was several game cock pits raided by federal Marshall's. in one arena there was 52 Marshall's. this is my opinion and view on this...it is a bunch of junk to start out with. the truth is if 2 game roosters where turned loose in the same yard these chickens would fight to the death. regardless to people fighting them. the humane society says that it is cruelty. well isn't it not cruel when a drunk hits a car and kills a kid or mangles it for life. isn't it not cruel to send our kids to a war that is over nonsince just to be killed . of course it is, but what is the political parties trying to do anything to stop it..you ask me nothing.. they could by making any form of alcohol illeagal. i ask all political parties which is more important to stop killing our kids from a war that is over stupidness, or killing our kids from drunk drivers, or stop 2 chickens from killing each other (which doesn't take any human to provoke). to me it is more important to them to stop game fighting then to stop our kids from being killed.. i am not a person that would kill anything, but i would kill a chicken everyday of the week rather than send someones child to war to be killed or let a drunk driver on the road to kill my kid. you ask me the war can be stopped and the drunk drivers can be stopped. for one by stopping a war will end a war. by making acohol illeagal will stop a drunk driver, but there is nothing you can do to stop these chickens from fighting cause it is in their nature.

i live in ky..i am a Breeder of game fowl..my opinion is that the "humane" society & peta should take a look at things thru others eyes..the bible says that god gave man dominion over the animals & fowl for food & recreation..surely that applies here...and also, if the hsus & pets want to outlaw game pits & gamefowl, then why dont they try outlawing the big meat & egg producers ? those fowl only live 2 months & have no chance for survival..at least gamefowl have the chance to fight for whats theirs..they have a 50/50 percent chance to survive...if they think that they will ever stop game shows, then they are fooling no one but themselves..have a good day

what do you think the so called humane society would do with all those chickens ? they would kill all of them! I don't think thats humane. Hundreds of people eat chicken every day so if your opposed to a backwoods cockfight and you eat chicken sandwich shut the hell up and worry about something that is a real problem. HSUS needs to worry about saving a dogs life instead of some chickens that we all eat.

I feel the goverment and HSUS should leave the rural life style alone. If they want to stop something stop man from killing each other and let the cocks go
