Feathers ruffled amid cockfighting crowd

Tempers flared at a Kandal cockfight last week, leading to spectators putting on a fight of their own. Police said a trio of men had spent Tuesday gambling on the duel of blood and feathers.

On a run of bad luck, two of them asked the third if he could spot them some cash to try to win their money back. Refused, the suspects became furious and stormed out, only to return moments later with a sword, which they used to attack the imperilled punter. Seriously injuring the man, they beat a hasty retreat and are now being sought by police. DEUM AMPIL
