Man Stabbed to Death by Cock

There's murder afoot, or perhaps it was justifiable homicide. A man attending an illegal cockfight in Tulare County, California died after receiving stab wounds inflicted on him by a cock, also known as a rooster. Stab, you ask? How does a cock stab a person? Don't they just peck?

Well, stabbing is typically done with a knife. And in this case, the stabbing was done with a knife. Someone, in their infinite wisdom, thought it smart to attach a knife to the limb of an already most-certainly pissed off rooster. I guess they thought it would improve their chances in the ring--and it definitely raises some interesting questions on what exactly is allowed in a cockfight. At some point after tying a knife to a rooster, someone got stabbed.


"Come at me, bro! I'll cluck you up!"

That man was Jose Luis Ochoa. Mr. Ochoa wasn't quite the innocent man; he was a regular in the cockfighting scene and was fined for his participation in it in the past. His past involvement in cockfighting does beg the question: was his stabbing by the gamecock less of an accidental stabbing or perhaps a murder motivated by revenge? No one knows for sure, but it's not hard to see how the rooster may have had motive in his slaying of Mr. Ochoa. The events leading up to the killing are also unknown, which also leaves open the possibility that this may have been an act of self-defense.

No one really knows.

But let that be a lesson to everyone. Mistreat animals for purposes of cockfighting, dogfighting, or any other abuse of animals, and the animals may fight back. And they're getting armed.




Which animals should we fear the most?

I suspect fowl play is afoot.

Some suspect it may have been a game of 'chicken' that went awry after someone got egged on.
