USPCA Releases Investigation Details into Cockfighting

The USPCA has today released details of a two year investigation into cockfighting.

The Society was stunned when our surveillance revealed large crowds gathering in open fields in broad daylight for hours on end watching the barbaric practice of cockfighting.

Incredibly the venue was within an area of increased surveillance leading up to the G8 summit in Fermanagh this week.

The birds spurs are removed and replaced with razor sharp implements to inflict the maximum damage and death.

The USPCA deplores this medieval practise that most people assumed was consigned to the dustbin of history many years ago.

The public of Northern Ireland require the authorities charged with enforcing welfare legislation to ensure that those identified in the footage are brought before the courts.
