Curtains for cockfight after police raid ring

Thirteen men proved quite unlucky when cops in Battambang’s Mong Russey busted a cockfight on Tuesday.

The 13 were hauled in, and only one cockfighting enthusiast, the ring’s owner, managed to escape in the fray.

The owner was reportedly paid $10 per fight, with hundreds of dollars in bets changing hands, leading to a host of social ills in the area, police said. KOH SANTEPHEAP
