OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A state senator has a plan for saving Oklahoma's
gamefowl industry now that cockfighters are legally prohibited from
pitting birds fitted with razor-like spurs.
State Sen. Frank Shurden, a longtime defender of cockfighting, is
suggesting that roosters be given little boxing gloves so they can
fight without bloodshed. The proposal is in a bill the Democrat has
introduced for the legislative session that begins Feb. 7.
"Who's going to object to chickens fighting like humans do? Everybody
wins," Sen. Frank Shurden said.
It's even better than this, the chickens are intended to be fitted
with vests equipped with electronic sensors to record the score, like
olympic fencers- I'd almost pay to see that picture! Glad to see
that Iowa isn't the only state with legislators with way too much time
on their hands!
