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]

    Making animals, of any kind, fight one another is just sick and depraved – these morons need to find another way to entertain and/or support themselves! Surely they’ve heard of boxing, where two consenting adults can beat one another to a pulp, if desired; just leave animals out of this type of abusive depravity!!!

  2. Cynthia Mattera says:

    This is a sick, evil sport. Poor birds…they all had to be put down. I hope the people running this hell hole are locked up for life. If released, they will just do it again. Rest in peace poor birds. Sorry your life was filled with misery:(

  3. Darlene Avery says:

    Absolutely deplorable, that any animal is made to fight. These poor, terrified birds. Put these depraved monsters away for a long, long time. They are despicable.

  4. Margaret Melnick says:

    Why are no arrests made? Are the police involved perhaps running these cock fights? No different than dog fights or any other animal abuse. I think the police force had better be investigated sounds like they are not upholding the law.

  5. Judith Weber says:

    Prosecute these people. How hard is it for the LAND th find them, resly?

  6. Marjorie Coey says:

    They should confiscate the property of owners/particpants in these “fights” and the money from their sale be used to house and care for this birds…

  7. Gigi Middlebrook Gigi Middlebrook says:
