Recommended Posts

After the Patpong jokes and animal rights rants are our of your system.......is there any place in BKK where they have cock flights and a farang wouldn't be in the way to watch?

Although cockfighting is not technically illegal in Thailand, the gambling that accompanies it is most certainly illegal That's why, crime supression officers from Bangkok raided a number of cock fighting events on Phuket earlier this year. A foreigner that wishes to go anywhere near a venue that has illegal gambling going on deserves the trouble he will get into.

I won't comment on the sick sort that gets his jollies on watching such cruel and inhumane conduct. My forensic psychiatry textbook does have a section on the link between violent criminals and their enjoyment of animal cruelty though.

I certainly hope that no one of any compassion, decency and with a heart will provide the information being sought. This is one of the most distasteful and sick requests I have seen in TVF.

I can't comment on Bangkok, perhaps ask one of your local friendlyTuk-tuk drivers, they usually know where the dodgy activities are happening!

I did however visit a cock fighting stadium in Cebu City in the Philippines, very interesting (Cultural!!) experience. This "sport" is huge over there if you ever get a chance to go. I can't deny that it is a very gruesome passtime, but I was surprized to watch veterinary personnel outside the stadium stitching up the injured birds apparently some of them are prize fighters and highly regarded. Hundreds of thousands of dollars are gambled between rich Businessmen at the bigger events in Manila. It is certainly not illegal there.

I don't consider myself a "sick sort" as geriatrikid put it, more of a case of when in Rome do what the Romans do! Would I go again? probably not.

I liked his point about how crimanls enjoy animal cruelty, I'm sure there were a lot of undesireable charachters at the event as the nice old lady on the ticket desk advised me to keep a close eye on my wallet!

It's perfectly legal and not underground like in other countries and definitely does not have to be some underground gambling den, am sure you can find some place. They have 'Gai Shon' magazines in book stores (look for the ones with the fighting cocks), pick one up and have a Thai person look through it for listings

Can't a mod. delete this post querying this barbaric 'sport'?

Sure you can find it on youtube or something. Hope this satisfies your macabre curiousity. Maybe after watching you will became an animal rights ranter yourself. I can only pray that your interest is a result of ignorance. Have you any idea what happens? The razor spurs etc? Google it.

Understandable for poor cultures not to be able to consider animal welfare, but our job with our more fortunate backgrounds should be to educate, not encourage.

Go and watch people box the sh#@t out of eachother. At least they had a choice and some rules designed to minimise injury.

I love eating meat. I am happiest to do so when the animal has had a fair stay on the planet. My cockerals, pigs and cattle have a good life. I then dispatch of them quickly and eat them. In my work I have humanely euthanased many animals. I don't enjoy it.

If this is a troll you got me.

Got your ranter.

I saw it going on a couple of weeks ago while shopping in the pet section of Chatuchak Market, way in the back. You really have to just keep going further and further back to the end. It is out in the open for all to watch.

Barbaric or not, it is not illegal, and I will answer the OP's question without expressing my opinion about the practice. On another note, I love watching the UFC, where humans pulverize each other for sport. Regardless of how anyone else felt about that, since it is also not illegal, I would want someone to answer my question about where I could view a live event if I were to ask such a question.

Dear Floridaguy,

Barbaric or not? Really?

Admire your open mind but suggest your argument flawed. If buying under-age children for sex were legal would you facilitate this with directions to obtain same. If it were legal would you tell someone how to do something you thought wrong? I doubt it. Humans pulverize eachother by choice as I pointed out in my earlier reply. I don't know what UFC is, but your 'loving' watching people pulverize themselves is a little disturbing to me. Many bad things are not illegal. Hope after seeing a cock-fight your opinion would become more learned.

Anybody that gets their jollies off watching something like this, is SICK.

Any civilized person knows that. Just wish I could articulate this with your command of the English language.

PS I can quote now. Thanks for the lesson.

Of course, if only I could type what I was really thinking......it had a bit more colour to it ;)

I'm not positive, but, I don't think they use the steel killing spurs in Thailand. It's not to the death.

Therefore, you are just watching two male chickens do what comes natural to them.

What's wrong with that?

Lotta people jumping to conclusions.

As to the poster equating paedophilia with a cock-fight. Get real.
