Yes, I think it is wrong, and what is up with you about cocks?

When I saw this title a very disturbing image came to my mind. o_o


On topic though, I think they're wrong.

I'm personally against them, however, cock fights are part of some cultures.

Yeah but because something is part of a culture doesn't make it right. What it's part of a culture to kill one person a day. Does that make it right?
When you force an animal to fight that is just wrong. It is completely different from boxing were humans chose to fight each other.

I completely agree, strangely enough.

It may sound "f**cked*," but it's accurate depending on how you define a soul. Animals aren't really self-aware. They don't know they exist, and don't even have free will. They're bound by their instincts.

On-topic, I can't say I care that much about the issue, but I don't agree with it. Attaching spurs to innocent animals and pitting them against each other for the sake of gambling is wrong, no matter how soulless they are.

Can you read? No where in my post did I condone cultures that have cock fights. I simply stated it was part of some cultures.

I'm against cock fighting due to the fact that they throw the loser away. If you're going to indirectly kill an animal at least make it worth something more than entertainment. :/

There is no gain for anyone except the gamblers. They rather try their luck than try some skill in something more profitable like poker.

Plus, just killing animals is wrong unless you use them for food and they aren't endangered.

Ugh. It's barbaric. Why don't we just fight to the death or something, Oh wait. I forgot, WE DO.

Yet another reason why humans are violent, ridiculous species that need to die sooner rather than later.

It's cruel to the animals and... The 'why' of it just... Doesn't make sense? I mean. Two roosters, killing each other. WHY?

It's the same with the whole, Snake and Mongoose fight. Why?

Cock fighting gambling requires knowledge. You have to be able to judge which chicken is better and key in factors such as its wing, beak, feet, etc. Also, raising a good cock fighting chicken requires some skill.

Roosters are born with aggression towards other roosters. That is "why".

So? Doesn't mean people have to shove them in arenas and make them fight. See? The 'why' still doesn't make any real, logical sense. Just because we were born, or developed agression, doesn't mean we have to act onto it, or get forced into doing something.

Are you seriously asking why? Do you honestly think they do this for no reason? It's to make money and for entertainment (a hobby to some). And before you go onto some nonsensical rant about the feelings of the fowl, the participants simply "don't care" about their feelings.

You still haven't answered my post in a different thread in which you said almost the exact same thing.
