Justice for Thousands of Roosters Forced to Fight to the Death

Target: Charlie Beck, Chief of the Los Angeles Police Department

Goal: Arrest those responsible for the cruel deaths of thousands of chickens.

7,000 birds were seized near Los Angeles in the biggest cockfighting bust of all time. There was no way to save any of them; birds trained to fight will continue to be aggressive and there are no shelters set up to rehabilitate them. All of the chickens were euthanized, after a cruel life of steroid injections and vicious fighting. Most of the people that go to these fights won’t get caught, and will keep torturing animals for their own sick amusement and profit from betting on the winners.

Cockfighting is illegal in all 50 states, and usually goes along with illegal gambling. Those aren’t the only crimes taking place at cockfights, though. Illicit drugs are often sold there, and homicide is not unheard of. Usually the birds do not have to die in order for a winner to be declared, but the injuries are often fatal nonetheless. Punctured lungs, pierced eyes and broken bones are some of the more common injuries suffered. This kind of large-scale operation would not have popped up overnight and the fact that it was allowed to get to this point is appalling in and of itself. Sign this petition to ensure the people responsible for this heinous crime do not go unpunished.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Beck

Cockfighting is a serious crime, even though the victims are animals. Every state recognizes it as such, and the recent cockfighting bust near Los Angeles involved a disturbingly large group of animals. Every last one of them had to be killed since there was no way to rehabilitate them or find homes for them. In a cockfight, the birds will have razors attached to their legs and it’s not uncommon for the surviving birds to die from their injuries later on. So far no one has been arrested in this case.

Cracking down on cockfighting would be beneficial to the police force, since cockfights are known for attracting criminal activity of other kinds as well. Illegal gambling, drug trade and gang activity can all be witnessed in addition to the actual fight. Please take action to punish these people and make an example out of them They’re directly responsible for the cruel deaths of so many animals, we must make sure that nothing like this ever happens again.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. This is so horrible and sad. It’s so sad that all the birds were killed – euthanized – after having a terrible life of abuse and torture.
    This property was apparently raided for the same reason in 2007. Obviously the perpetrators – or some of them – were still out free to run this cruel business. ALL of the people involved MUST be arrested and fully prosecuted, or this will continue again.
    Please don’t let this happen to any more birds.

  2. LOW LIFE SCUM BAGS…PERPETRATORS OF SUCH WICKED EVIL CRUELTY ON THESE POOR BIRDS….PLEASE IF YOU KNOW THE SCUM MORONS WHO DO THIS HEINOUS CRIME TELL THE MEDIA WHO THESE LESS THAN HUMANS ARE, AND WHERE THEY ARE FORCING THESE BIRDS TO FIGHT TO THE DEATH, THEN LETS SEE THEM RUN AND HIDE, BECAUSE I TRULY HOPE SOMEONE WILL GET THEM…IF YOU MONSTERS ARE READING THIS THAN I WISH YOU EVERYTHING THAT’S BAD AND PAINFUL FOR THE REST OF YOUR MISERABLE LIVES.

  3. hell awaits the turds who do this to the rooster now.

  4. I was watching a cockfight in Philippines 1986 just to get the knowledge of it, and I tell you, I have never being in one since then, it was disgusting.

    I also agree with what B Denno said.
