Non-stop cockfighting just too much to bear

A cockfight held once a week, maybe twice – that, a neighbourhood could tolerate.

But a near-daily backyard bloodbath in Battambang’s Samlot district produced enough complaints that police were forced to crack down last Tuesday.

As participants tried to scatter, seven were arrested, including the homeowner, while 10 motos and four fighting birds were confiscated.

While the cockfight’s host will be fronting court, the other six were let go after signing a pledge to avoid the blood sport in the future.
