    Rooster wins by knockout.

    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-india-56224144

    Didn’t know cockfighting was technically illegal in India since 1960, went to one in Assam about 10 years ago, birds didn’t have blades though and was a tame affair at times. Usually one bird just chickened out (I guess that’s where the phrase came from) and was given to the owner of the winning bird.

    Went to another in Peru with blades and it was a complete blood bath, sometimes both birds died and flights were over in seconds. Completely stupid.

    I was chased by an angry goose once, just outside my house. A kangaroo or an adult chimpanzee would undoubtedly have been more scary, but that goose was scary enough, let me tell you.

    It's not televised, probably.

    Curiosity for the Indian one and was actually interesting to see, in Peru was work related which was just brutal. I’ve seen cockfighting on local tv somewhere though, can’t remember where.

    Those geese don’t take any prisoners, was chased by a monkey myself, was told they were aggressive and not to carry any plastic bags as they would go for them, no one mentioned the same about a bottle of water.

    It's poetic justice.

    The rooster stabbed him in the groin. And rooster's are known by another name...

    You actually compare this to the heinous activity known as cockfighting?

    Make of it what you will. In my case it was Man v Goose rather than Man v Rooster. But I didn't think Man v Goose warranted a thread all of its own.

    I went to a bullfight in Mexico once.

    Ok, so man proved they can stab a bull and get away with it most of the time.

    crude.

    The man was killed by his own rooster after an illegal cockfight. Now that’s poetic justice.

    No comment from me. By talking about a goose, I've been exposed as a de facto cockfighting apologist.
