Punters in a flap after rooster ring cock-up

A gaggle of gamblers took flight when police busted their cockfighting gig on Sunday.

The group was betting at a mango plantation in Kandal’s Kien Svay district when neighbours became fed up with the commotion and called the cops on the illegal gambling ring.

Police arrived to a hastily deserted scene complete with six abandoned motorbikes and four presumably puzzled roosters.

The motorbikes have been taken hostage, with police vowing only to return them once the owners sign an agreement never to bet on cockfights again.
