Cock kills owner during cockfight in India

A rooster with a blade tied to its leg has killed its owner during an illegal cockfight in southern India, police have said. 

The animal, which was equipped with a three-inch blade, fluttered in panic and slashed 45-year-old Thangulla Satish in his groin last week, authorities confirmed.  

The incident occurred in Lothunur village of Telangana state, police Inspector B. Jeevan said today. Satish was injured while he prepared the rooster for a fight. 

‘Satish was hit by the rooster’s knife in his groin and started bleeding heavily,’ Insp Jeevan said, adding he died on the way to a hospital. 

The officer said police filed a case and were looking for over a dozen people involved in organising the cockfight.

  If proven guilty, the organisers can be jailed for up to two years. Insp Jeevan said the rooster was brought to the police station before being taken to a local poultry farm. 

 ‘We may need to produce it before the court,’ he added.
