View Full Version : Fighting roosters at heart of bill

A loop hole in Oregon law allows this idiot to raise birds for cockfighting.

Steve Clark scans his two acres to make sure none of his 150 fighting birds has gone free. The battlers from the Asian jungles squawk and tug against leashes around their right legs, driven by an instinct to attack surrounding birds.

For Clark, there is a double price to pay if a bird gets free. It will seek out the nearest bird and fight to the death. And neighbors might assume that Clark is allowing cockfighting on his farm.

Although cockfighting is illegal in Oregon, raising the roosters to be exported to other states and countries is not.

:mad: :( Ugh. I hate stupid loopholes like this. Hopefully the local AR contingent are watching him like hawks and will prosecute the very first incident any of his birds squabble...
