Spain: Cockfighting - Betting on the Past

Spain: Cockfighting - Betting on the Past

The ancient ritual of cockfighting has been almost completely eradicated in modern Europe, but for Andalucia, Spain, where it thrives. This is a culture that also allows bullfighting, pig shooting and turkey tossing. Even ecologists understand that it is difficult to get cockfights banned whilst bullfighting continues. "The cock is the poor man's bull." But the argument goes even deeper than cruelty to animals, into a moral dimension. Ecologists argue that by outlawing this gratuitous violence, society would become less violent. While breeders continue to dream that one day cockfights will attain the status of the bullfight.
