Apparently people in Queens really like their cock: 80 Are Arrested After Raid at Cockfight

I think this quote really captures the irony of the situation: "The roosters seized over the weekend will be humanely killed, Mr. Pentangelo said, because they are too violent to be raised as pets and too tough to be eaten." I mean, how messed up is that? You are rescued by the ASPCA and then put to death? It's better to die in the ring.
