Here is a bizarre twist in an animal cruelty case and just another reason NOT to participate!
A man died shortly after cops busted a cockfight in Delano, California, because he was stabbedby his own rooster!
When law enforcement officials arrived at the scene of the crime after an anonymous tip, only six dead roosters and cockfighting paraphernalia were left behind.
However, authorities later learned that 35-year-old Jose Luis Ochoa was rushed to the area's hospital where he later died due to, as an autopsy revealed, a sharp force injury of the right calf.
Authorities said Ochoa was trying to catch the rooster when the blade severed his leg, cutting a major artery.
We are saddened to hear that a man lost his life to this cruel, disgusting blood sport, but c'mon people! Don't attach blades to roosters and make them fight each other!
