Rooster killed man taking him to a cockfight

A man, taking a rooster to participate in a violent and deadly cockfight, was killed when the rooster he was transporting slashed him on the neck. According to multiple sources, 50-year-old Saripalli Chanavenkateshwaram Rao died after the blade attached to the rooster’s leg slashed him, causing a fatal stroke, reports the Daily Beast.

Click 2 Houston reports that Rao was a regular at cockfights – the rooster who ultimately killed him was supposed to be participating in one of the illegal contests.

Cockfights are illegal in India, but the bloody contests happen anyway. In fact, the fight that the man-killing rooster was headed to took place, despite the “attack” on Rao.

  1. Karma. Wonder if that rooster was returned to the family or confiscated? Since it has killed one person, perhaps it’s too dangerous to be with the family? I know that I wouldn’t want it near my children…..

  2. I don’t think everyone has carefully read the story–the rooster was a REGULAR fighting rooster and was forced to fight ANYWAY! Too bad the rooster didn’t
