    on the Knoxville craigslist there is an add for game roosters that states The males of this flock are good fighting roosters.
    (which I can assume is coming from experience) and it made me quite angry so I sent them this message---

    I would like to inform you that fighting roosters "cock fighting" is illegal and is, in fact, a felony in the state of Tennessee.
    there is a fine of $3,000 and jail time from 1 to 6 years.
    I am a lover of all animals, especially chickens, and selling birds with the intent of subjecting them to such cruelty truly offends me.

    I'm sorry if I'm out of line. Have a nice day.


    I'm not entirely sure on my facts, but I was angry and only got them from one site.

    back me up?? [​IMG]

    2. No PETA or Cock fighting posts, period!

    I understand your intent, but according to our BYC rules, we cannot have the discussion here. Thanks for understanding!​
