Heres one you definitely dont hear every day; a police officer in the Philippines died during a raid on an illegal cockfighting event when one of the roosters with a blade attached to its leg attacked the cop and caused a fatal wound.
The incident transpired Tuesday, Fox reports, while police were attempting to shut down the illegal cockfight being held in Northern Samar. Cockfighting is actually legal in the region on Sundays and on certain holidays, however due to COVID, all events have been outlawed for the entire year.
Officials reported that Lieutenant Christian Bolok encountered the rooster while collecting evidence. Apparently there was a bit of a skirmish, and the bird managed to cut the officers leg with a steel razor blade that had been attached to its leg. The blade sliced through Boloks femoral artery, ultimately causing him to bleed out.
Colonel Arnel Apud, police chief for the local police department, described the freak accident as a piece of bad luck in a statement with the AFP news agency.
I could not believe it when it was first reported to me. This is the first time in my 25 years as a policeman that I lost a man due to a fighting cocks spur, the colonel explained.
Officer Bolok was immediately rushed to a nearby hospital, but rescue efforts were unsuccessful as he was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital.
Don’t bring a ...
You F***s are barbarians to allow cock fighting in the first place.
Hey liberals, all cultures are NOT the same, some really, really suck!
That is the Bruce Lee of roosters.
Well... weapons are the great equalizers...
Another COVID-19 Chinese Virus related death.
A COVID-19 death.
Not a particular fan of cockfighting but I’m a big believer that the government should stay out of instituting any moral agenda unless absolutely necessary (ie murder etc). Otherwise you get the SJW plague we have to deal with now. It should be left to private society itself to come to terms with the ethics of cockfighting. I’m sure they’d come over here and ban cow and bacon eating if they had the chance.
Both combatants walked away and lived to fight another day.
Not nearly as good as a tarantula and a giant centipede locked in a bottle.
Im so touched by the Colonels emotional comment on the death of one of his officers in the line of duty

... would probably sell better than all these SJW comic books
We have a Rooster with 2” spurs. (Natural ones, I mean.) If he was as mean as our Bantam rooster...
(We keep them apart.)
In before the Little Jerry Seinfeld post!! d:^)
ha before reading the article i guessed the philippines they are rabid about c fights
The LEO was Filipino. The rooster might have been bigger than he was.
Hey, take it easy. Cockfighting used to be big here in South Carolina. Haven’t you heard of the Gamecocks? That refers to a fightin’ bird that has ‘game’ - is full of pluck and fury. Blood sports are always popular.
Pre-Rudy it was pretty big in Washington Heights, NYC also.
