Man Dies After Attack from His Cockfighting Rooster

An Indian died of a stroke after an attack from his rooster on the way to a cockfight.

 

50-year-old Saripalli Chanavenkateshwaram was reportedly a regular at the local cockfights in Pragadavaram, India.  Police reported to CNN that the man was struck in the neck with a blade attached to the fighting rooster’s foot when the animal attempted to escape.  Chanavenkateshwaram was taken to the hospital where he later died of a stroke.

 

Cockfighting has been illegal in India since 1960.
