DELANO (AP) — A California man attending a cockfight has died after being stabbed in the leg by a bird that had a knife attached to its own limb.

The Kern County coroner says 35-year-old Jose Luis Ochoa was declared dead at a hospital about two hours after he suffered the injury in neighboring Tulare County on Jan. 30.

An autopsy concluded Ochoa died of an accidental “sharp force injury” to his right calf.

Sheriff’s spokesman Ray Pruitt says it’s unclear if a delay in seeking medical attention contributed to Ochoa’s death. Tulare officials are investigating, and no arrests were made at the cockfight.

Cockfighting is a sport, illegal in the United States, in which specially bred roosters are put into a ring and encouraged to fight until one is incapacitated or killed.

        No, no, no, no, no. You don’t have a clue if he was Mexican or Puerto Rican. The article doesn’t mention whether he was legal or illegal. Please don’t embarrass thinking people that want to enforce immigration laws with racist comments.

    8. Steven says:

      So, someone dies of a stab to the leg two hours after the occurance? Be it a rooster or not, it doesn’t work that way and this doesn’t make sense. It couldn’t have been death due to infection, because two hours is a short time for infection to reach the heart at such levels to stop the heart. Maybe an artery in the leg, but fixing a ruptured artery in the calf is much easier than repairing on in the neck, easier as far as repairing arteries goes. So I wonder, what really happened. Cause this story is a crock.

      1. Justice for Some says:

        His amigos preferred to watch him bleed out instead of getting him to the hospital and admitting what they were up to. Adios!

      2. Sparrow says:

        Organ failure to to massive blood loss was most likely the cause. You can repair and artery, yes, but organ damage can be much harder to overcome.

      3. MorganGray says:

        The other thing is sometimes penetrating wounds don’t show much in the way of an external bleed. The tissues close up behind the weapon when it is withdrawn, but you are still bleeding into your tissues. Externally, all you have is a nasty bruise and a seeping puncture.
        And, there is no mention if it was an arterial bleed. A vein bleeds out more steadily, without the spurting of an arterial injury.
        Plus, if you go into an ER with a knife wound, the docs are gonna ask how it happened. These guys were breaking the law and would probably rather see their friend croak than admit to the crime.
        The rooster should be rewarded with all the corn he can eat and all the hens he can … crow over.
        The false friends should be charged with manslaughter.

      4. Deena says:

        Maybe his “friends” stood around and placed bets on how long it would take him to die!!!!!

      5. MegaCynic says:

        A good whack severing the femoral artery can cause death from a bleed-out of the artery in approximately seven minutes.

        The important question is, will the rooster be charged with manslaughter, accidental homicide, or first degree murder? And will the rooster hire his own attorney, or will he (roosters are all HEs) be provided with a public defender at Taxpayer expense?

    9. McHoofty says:

      We have so much to learn from these other cultures…

    10. janet says:

      one up for the rooster. don’t feel sorry for the idiots who put these poor birds through this everyday in america.

  2. Kat says:

    I agree a befitting death for people cruel enough to participate in such a cruel event!

    1. Sparrow says:

      Organ failure due to massive blood loss was most likely the cause. You can repair and artery, yes, but organ damage can be much harder to overcome.

    2. Mary says:

      he got what he deserved. too many sick people in the world any way, and forcing animals to fight to the death for your amusement.. that’s a sick person

      1. holier than thou says:

        I agree, Ultimate fighting is much more eloquent….

      2. Tom says:

        Pretty sure it says the man “attended” and not “forced a rooster to fight.”

  3. Maria says:

    I hope the poor Rooster was donated to a farm santuary….

    1. Rob says:

      After he does Good Morning America, an Oprah and of course an evaluation on Dr Phil, to make sure he is stable enough to be a part of society.

    2. Melissa in NorCal says:

      Nope. They euthanize them.

    3. Mary says:

      I would like to comment on Tom and the fact he has S,,T for brains…..If NO ONE attended, there would be no fights ,,,,,,,duhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

  4. Kevin in LA says:

    That’s Karma and I don’t feel a bit sad about it. bleep happens..

    1. notlovinLA says:

      I’m with you, Kevin in LA. Mr. Ochoa got what he deserved and it wasn’t even newsworthy. I hope his soul is pecked incessantly while in hell! Stupid is as stupid does.

    2. Carlos says:

      Why SHOULD you feel sad? It was just some Mexican….right?

      1. Jose says:


      2. Greg West says:

        No Jose, It was a person that fights dumb animals for enjoyment and profit.
        Pinche pindejo

      3. American says:


      4. apo says:

        Just some Mexican indulging in an illegal bloodsport, who got what he deserved. Yeah. If Michael Vick or some dumb white meth junkie had his throat ripped out by a pit bull he trained to kill or die for his entertainment, I’d cheer the dog, too. It’s not a race thing, it’s a torturing animals for fun is f’ed up thing.

        Nice try dodging the issue though.

      5. Cristoff says:

        Don’t make this about race Carlos. Kevin is just a moron that values the life of chickens over that of a human. I’m sure Kevin only eats free range chickens that are terminated in the most humane way possible… being fed delicious poisoned grain while listening to Barbara Streisand. That or he’s a dirty hippie. Either way, save your race card for those that enter the country illegally.

      6. Rick says:

        Thanks Carlos for putting a positive ‘spin’ on a horrific story.

      7. Robin says:

        Most likely a border jumping Mexican, Carlos. That means he was a felon as well.

      8. patacones says:

        Just another stewpit, degenerate mexsickun, yes. Good work Mr. Rooster!

      9. Another Another Guy says:

        Christoff, This is one really big dirty hippie, and I don’t like your tone!!! Why do they always blame the dirty hippies?

      10. Gregorio says:

        What do you mean race? The last time I looked I thought Mexican was a Nationality! Stupid Libs, your racism is showing. Final Score: Pollos 1, Mexicanos 0

      11. Ouroboris says:

        No, he was just some guy profiting on the torture, mutilation, and death of animals in the name of “sport”.

      12. frosty says:

        It does not matter if he was Mexican or not. The important issue is the brutal sport he died enjoying.

    3. Katya in Florida says:

      Actually, Carlos, it was some sick, twisted savage beast who enjoys torturing innocent animals. And if you think this is a sport, you’re just as sick and twisted and savage as the dead guy. He got exactly what he deserved. I just wish he’d got it sooner.

      1. Mary says:

        Well said Frosty,,,,,,,, Thats the whole!

    4. Phil says:

      Michael Vick got jail time. Oh, that’s right, it was a dog. Totally different!

      1. Think about it says:

        @Phil–Yeah, but this guy got the death penalty. Feel better?

    5. Oberon123 says:

      I’m totally with you, Kevin. It’s isn’t about race at all, as some bums here have claimed. It’s about animal abuse. the creep got what he deserved. I’d say the same about anybody who engaged in this barbarism, regardless of nationality.

      1. Think about it says:

        Yeah, but this guy got the death penalty. Feel better?

      2. Frosty says:

        Agree Agree Agree!

    6. Connie says:

      I concur! This story put a smile on my face, which is probably pretty evil, but a smile nonetheless. 😉

  5. Dman says:

    Lets get that rooster and his entire family to our southern boarder NOW

    1. Carlos says:

      Hey Dman, it’s spelled BORDER. A boarder is someone that you have living with you.

      1. Rob says:

        So the chicken is living with him till he can sneak across the Arizona border

      2. Ornley Gumfudgen says:

        If ya consider th illegals that flood across our borders that are now livin with us while we pick up th tab ta sustain em, boarder may really be an appropriate word.

      3. Charles Runyon says:

        Ornely, Great reply!!! LOL

      4. Pudinhead says:

        Actually, It could be a boarder that came across the border…? Hypothetically…

      5. Stiv says:

        Yes, like you and the twenty people you live with in a three room house Carlos.

  6. Mark says:

    If that’s not justice I don’t know what is..

    1. Melissa in NorCal says:

      I feel that way when the bull gores the matador. Yeah!!!!

  7. notlovinLA says:


  8. tastelikechiken says:

    hahhaahaahaa. will the d.a. press charges against the……..chicken?

    1. Rob says:

      is this another chicken joke.

    2. Ornley Gumfudgen says:

      Nope, ya got it all confused, Th Chinese press chickens an Islamic terrorists make charges that will explode th chicken. Th DA is probably just lookin fer a good chicken dinner. It’s always sad when a person dies but this is sorta poetic justice that brings a smile ta yer lips when ya hear it. May God forgive us all fer bein rather jubilant over th death of one of his children even if that child was livin in error.

  9. tastelikechiken says:

    has a composit sketch been given on the suspected……feather face?
    that lil’ clucker may be headed for the border……

  10. Kelley says:

    he was a human being, so i won’t say he deserved it, as no one does, not even an animal.. may this teach people to be kinder to all.. on the other hand, this is a sign of some sort, a few weeks ago a man was shot by a fox he had injured with the same weapon, now this.. STOP ANIMAL CRUELTY!!

    1. Mikey says:

      I disagree. If you as a “human being” get your sick thrills from watching 2 birds with blades on their legs peck and slice each other to death…or for that matter fight pit bulls or repeatedly stab a bull to death in a ring where it has no chance then you do deserve what you get, I don’t really think that we need “human beings” like that around.

      1. Chuck Curry says:

        Every human civilization has had animal sport at one point or another. I agree it’s a throwback, but don’t be so high and mighty. If your only positive trait is a lack of negative traits, I’m not impressed. It’s easy to criticize a different culture, but what sort of culture values a rooster more than a man? Talk about callous.

      2. Steve says:

        Chuck is right, I could say self righteous arrogant condescending people like Mikey shouldn’t be allowed to live; but then I would like Mikey

      3. Tony says:

        I agree with Mikey. The rooster doesn’t have a choice. It is following it’s nature, which is being manipulated when it is locked into a small space with another rooster. It doesn’t seek fame or fortune or thrills. On the other hand, the people watching and participating in the sport have a choice. And their choice is to defile innocent creatures not for food, labor, or some other utility-deriving use, but to get their sick thrills from it.

      4. Oberon123 says:

        I agree with you, Mikey. Good riddance to human rubbish.

    2. Charles U. Farley says:

      A LOT of “human beings” deserve a LOT more than they get.

    3. tastelikechiken says:

      i will keep eating chicken, but i never arm 1 with a knife. thats askin’ for revenge. looool

  11. AJ Morgan says:

    Spot on Rooster!

    1. Carlos says:

      Don’t say “spot on”.

      1. Rob says:

        but maybe he was a spotted rooster, ya never know

      2. legalgirl says:

        people can say what they want Carlos. You sick freak

  12. Mikey says:

    This is something that plagues the Latino community. I’m sure there were probably some low life non Latino’s there as well, but when they over this “machismo” thing that they have and realize that these birds have feeling and suffer while they get their eye pecked out or what ever happens then the world and their community will have taken one step forward into the 21st century. Stop that stuff now!

    1. Carlos says:

      “Latino community…” It’s like saying…That Black community needs to stop with that dog fighting. Moron.

      1. apo says:

        Well, they do. Moron.

      2. justaminutetherefella says:

        I know some Puerto Ricans that fight dogs. It’s not only the blacks!

        How bout the eskimos? They bludgeon baby seals… Damned eskimos!!!

    2. Rob says:

      Well this is one bird that didn’t suffer….
      he deserves an extra hen tonight

      1. tastelikechiken says:

        just prior to the attack upon the victim, the rooster was quoted as saying(clucking)…….””BAKABAKABAKAAAAAAAAAAAAAA””!!!!!!!!!!!!
        then came the vicious attack, and after which the rooster was quoted as saying (clucking), “dont u wish u had a hamburger instead of that chicken sandwitch.” 🙂

  13. AB says:

    How is the rooster doing?

  14. Sandra says:

    Funny for too many reasons and sad for the same ones. Sometimes, you get what you aren’t looking for but you get it anyway.

    Learn or die!

    1. Carlos says:

      Huh? You may need to try that one again.

      1. nevatu says:

        Oh….I think onc is enough.

  15. mike says:

    sorry people the rooster got justice by KFC will be at a plate tonight or at a combo please attend the service u can get part of the soul if u get one of the offer’s.please bring ur coupon lol jajajajaj

  16. Eddie says:

    Three cheers for the rooster!!

  17. Amy Jacobson says:

    Ha! ha! People that attend such a cruel event like this deserve to die…yes die. A picture of this rooster should be placed in the Getty Museum.

    1. Steve says:

      Chickens should have their maimed carcases picked apart and eaten. they shouldn’t be fighting like that, thats mean.

      1. Carlos says:

        I’m picking apart some yard-bird carcass as we…..mmmmm….speak.

    2. Chuck Curry says:

      We should kill Don King then!

    3. Cristoff says:

      Right. Just like ignorant feminists should be forced to live in Muslim countries. Fair trade in my opinion. One note of caution…..I wouldn’t go blaring your bootlegged Lilith fair cd over there. That is likely punishable by death….stoning most likely.

  18. krg says:

    I want to know why if it was an illegal event noone was arrested. That’s why this sort of stuff continues to happen, nothing is done even when they get caught. And YAY for that rooster..I hope he gets to go somewhere nice and retire now.

    1. Steve says:

      That rooster needs to retire to my frying pan.
      Meat is murder.
      Tasty murder.

      1. Carlos says:

        Right on right on…

  19. THE MAN says:

    Glad the rooster won.

  20. Dave says:

    Good for the rooster.that guy deserved it

    1. Steve says:

      That guy won’t be fighting any more chickens where he’s going….

  21. Chris says:

    Well, the INS probably should have deported Jose the illegal alien a long time ago. Nonetheless, I suppose the rooster made it impossible for him to illegally re-enter the country, so score one for the USA!

    1. Scotty says:

      I’m sorry, I missed it. Where in the piece did it say that Jose was an illegal alien?

      Oh, I see.Because of his Spanish name, he MUST have been an illegal.
      Typical ignorant, racist stereotyping.

      May the rooster live a long and enjoyable life.

      1. Barbara says:

        The article need not say Jose was an illegal. If you read between the lines, it’s clear as day to anybody who has lived in this country. Who else would bring these filthy customs to the U.S.?

        P.S. – At least half of all Mexicans are illegal, even if you don’t count their illegal anchor babies.

      2. Stan says:

        Si se puede!

  22. Nuppy Chavez says:


  23. Reality2011 says:

    Small loss…….Hope the Rooster survived to take out more of these bozos…!

  24. leslie says:

    Well what comes around goes around. Good for that rooster. Now let’s get Vick into a dog ring and maybe a few Japanese into the dolphin pool.

  25. Lee says:

    Oh well, an eye for an eye 🙂

  26. Erika K Moureau says:

    Rooster 1—Jose 0!!! Paybacks are hell!

  27. pragmatist says:

    I feel NO sadness for someone killed by the cruelty he himself inflicted. Good riddance. hopefully this will continue to happen!!!

    1. Steve says:

      You mess with the chicken, you’re gonna get the blade.

      1. Carlos says:

        I cut chew mang!!!

  28. Texan78730 says:

    I was going to leave a comment, but nothing I would say could beat these!

  29. MarkBench says:

    No sadness at all.

    1. Carlos says:

      Did you feel sadness when 100,000 Haitians died in the earthquake last year?

      1. Rob says:

        what’s that got to do with chickens

      2. Cristoff says:

        I think what Carlos is saying is that hatians love chicken. I find this stereotype to be untrue…..everyone loves chicken…except for Amy Jacobson.

      3. CallMeIshmael says:

        Did you know that KFC is more popular in China than McDonald’s?

      4. alkjrf says:

        I was just thinking that I had figured out how Carlos felt about Chickens and Mexicans, now he throws in Haitians???? Man, this guy is complex, but I’ll bet he hates WHITE MEAT??? Am I right CarLOOOOOOOSEE?

      5. stiv says:

        No, not in the least. It’s an excellent way to thin the herd.

  30. Jim says:

    I hope the rooster gets sanctuary in Arizona!

    C’mon people, Karma and irony aside, it was a CHICKEN ! ! !

    1. legalgirl says:

      It was a rooster dummy. Any type of animal fighting is cruel and inhumane. There are alot of sick people on this site who serously need professional help.

  35. i8pikachu says:

    I do feel sad for the man who died. But in no way to I condone a senseless ‘sport’ that forces animals to suffer for the enjoyment of people.

  36. Justice - at a price says:

    So the Rooster won this one – but who exactly is paying for the hospital expenses? Probably the taxpayers.

    1. kentucky fighting chicken says:

      Last time I checked, dead people don’t get hospital expenses. Who paid for your reading lessons? No child left behind?

      1. ianto says:

        The account says he died at the hospital. Hospitals charge money. Taxpayers get stuck with the bill.

    2. Rob says:

      For the mexican or the chicken??

  37. sailfished says:

    it is a friggin chicken people , Mr. Ochoa was an imperfect human being ,possibly had a family. I would not put a comment here that would not be spoken face to face with those who probably cared for and loved this person , . The comments here speak volumes about the sad state of the human condition . I am glad that I am shocked by the shallowness of the earlier comments , Lord protect me from such cravenness.

    1. Dave says:

      Oh get stuffed you sanctimonious lout……lord protect you….gag….

      1. sailfished says:

        I will leave the gagging to you , it seems to come naturally

    1. el boyo loco says:

      If it’s any consolation, Michael Vick has to spend about half of every year for the foreseeable future in Philadelphia, which is quite honestly a fate worse than dying at the fangs of a rabid dog.

    Nobody was arrested? Because it was a Mexican crowd no doubt.

    Let’s stop beating about the bush – if you know anything about Hispanics you know that even if they have the money they rarely seek medical attention for anything. If this idiot would have gone to a hospital right after the cut he would have lived but no…the pride of this macho hispanic man said “im okay”…well that’s what you get moron. And I’m half hispanic.

    Best news I’ve heard all day.

  53. Carlos says:

    Anonymity is a shield for closet racists.

    1. Rob says:

      None of us have ANYTHING against Chickens

      1. adf says:

        or CLOSETS!! Just stay in there, nothing wrong with that! Dang.

    2. Nick says:

      Yeah, keep it up Carlos. Maybe if you throw out racism enough it will finally apply to some of these comments.

  54. Ron says:

    Think about it. The guy will have to spend eternity in Limbo. No way he can show up in Heaven or Hell and admit he was killed by a chicken!

    1. Rob says:

      gotta love it………

  55. Rob says:

    Rooster revenge

  56. John H Tipton says:

    I hope he fries!

    1. Tukaram says:

      Fried chicken? Oh the idiot that got stabbed. I hope he gets reincarnated as a chicken!

  57. Stephen says:

    What I’m shocked about is that this guy bled out from a stab wound to the calf! Any idiot with 15 mins of first aid training could have saved this guy by putting a touriquet on his leg and got him to the nearest hospital. Hell, sufficient pressure, a makeshift bandage and dressing with elevation above his heart should have been enough. to keep him stable enough for medical personnel to arrive.

    1. CallMeIshmael says:

      But then he’d miss the end of the fight.

  58. Sean says:

    Sorry, but want to point out a correction in the story. This individual was identified as a man but the story seems to indicate otherwise.

    1. Jane says:

      You’re right about that…

  59. holly says:

    stupid, illegal, horrific sport…idiot deserved it…

  60. tom doss says:

    All you people really need to get a hobby.

  61. Mark says:

    It seems odd that someone would die from a leg-wound. Maybe there was an accomplice, or more to the story we’re not being told.

    1. Charles U. Farley says:

      Cut an artery. Legs have them, you know…

  62. Donna says:

    I’m sure they killed the poor rooster for revenge….They call me a sport?

  63. Don says:

    The man had no problem getting his jollies watching two animals slaughter each other. All that was on his mind was that the rooster he bet on, wins. Not a thought to what was happening to these two poor dumb roosters. In a word, disgusting. I hate to see any human suffer as well, no matter what ignorant thing they did. However, having said that – there seems to be a little poetic justice to this story….. Don, St Charles, Missouri

  64. Charles U. Farley says:

    It’s a start! Let’s all support a Rooster Revolution! Hasta luego mojados!

  65. says:

    What kind of Moron gets “capped” by a chicken. Someone needs to call Eric Holder now. It was a hate crime.

  66. craig says:

    Awesome! I wish this would happen more often.

  67. Keith G. says:

    I feel a movie coming on. ( When Chickens Attack!!!!!)

  68. David Sutherland says:

    People are created in God’s image.

    How politically incorrect to state, I know.

    Those who are cheering on the death of a man need to take a step back from the keyboard and remind themselves how precious humankind is… yes, even cruel humans, and how they are more valuable than other species.

    1. ttj says:

      You’ve got to be kidding. In what way did this “cruel human” show he was more valuable than a member of another species?

      There are garden-variety slugs that have shown more moral character than this dude.

      You need a reality check, amigo.

  69. Haywood Jabloeme says:

    Ole Red the Rooster was arrested and charged with murder and will be sent to the nearest Chicken farm where he will be sentenced to 20 bird years and hard labor for killing a Mexican who was gambling illegally and only trying to make money to feed his family. Oh the Horror!

  70. Myra says:

    Just cleaning up the gene pool.

  71. ttj says:

    Mexican or not, I feel sorry for this poor, stupid moron. When are these people going to learn? You torture an innocent creature, you risk getting what you deserve. It was obviously a sort of divine justice. They should make this story into a film or a cartoon or something and broadcast it all over Mexico and Southern California. Perhaps it would serve as a wake-up call to these idiots everywhere before they risk hurting more animals or getting themselves killed by wayward, knife-wielding roosters.

  72. Flopear says:

    Bring back dog fighting as in Jack London’s Call of the Wild!

  73. astralweeks says:

    Awesome. Now if we can get some of those pit bulls to turn on the idiots at dog fights, we’ll see some real Karma in action.

  75. Noah Vaile says:

    Hey. This wasn’t just some plain old chicken. This was a trained, fighting chicken, who was carrying a knife.
    Now I’m not sure of the Kalifornia law but if the blade on the knife was over five inches, or if it was a push button knife, it may have been a felony for the chicken to be carrying it.
    It also doesn’t mention if the chicken cut the man as part of a robbery or if it was accidental. As in “hey. look at my knife! ooopps., sorry about that. Nasty gash. You should have it taken care of.” Or was it “Your money or your life, human!”?

    1. Ar Amytas says:

      It was clearly a racial hate crime.

    2. Haywood Jabloeme says:

      Noah, That was friggin hilarious! Maybe ole Red was part of the MS13 and it was a planned “hit” on poor ole Ochoa!

  76. tasty says:

    I like chickens. They taste like chicken!

  77. JA says:

    Do they have capital punishment for chickens in California? What would they do, choke the chicken?

  78. ChickenLover says:


  79. Liber Al says:

    Why did the chicken stab the Mexican illegal?
    To get him to the other side.

    1. Scotty says:

      I’m sorry, I missed it. Where in the piece did it say that Jose was an illegal?

      Oh, I see.Because of his Spanish name, he MUST have been an illegal.
      Typical ignorant, racist stereotyping.

      May the rooster live a long and enjoyable life.

    2. cluck u says:

      We have a winner!!! LOL

  80. rebeldrum says:

    Go ahead. Get your racist description of me out of the way so we can try to get an answer to a question that has been intriguing me.

    I am confused and curious. Carlos is making some racial comments–us (Carlos) against them (whites). I am assuming that Carlos is not negroid nor asian. What’s left? Caucasian. Anything else Carlos could be a descendant from? Is he of Spanish (caucasian) descent?

    So, what I am asking is since when have Hispanics become anything other than that dreaded white race? I am being totally serious in asking this. It seems the black race in the U.S. has labeled the Hispanics “persons of color.” So what does that mean, are they negroid? It seems to me they have been claimed by one race (black) to increase their own numbers politically.

    Could their darker skin be because they live in a more sun-filled part of the earth rather than genetics? My southern Italian ancestors are much darker skinned than I am. I rarely go into the sun and am very fair skinned. But my Italian relatives are not considered “persons of color.” It’s just all so strange and contrived. Or, am i wrong?

    1. Guess Who says:

      Carlos is a mestizo mongrel, just the type our overlords want all of us to become. Just look at today’s commercials.

  81. rudy says:

    Give that chicken a job with Immigration

  82. Rex Reddy says:

    The article did not say that the man was an illegal.
    Not all Mexicans are bad.
    Your accusations without fact merely fan the flames of hate.
    That does nothing to better the situation.
    He may have been there to protest.
    He may have been there for love.

    He may have said “ Thay there Fella’s:

    Jose Luis Ochoa is up for a Darwin Award now.

  86. signman99 says:

    Although this sport is barbaric, I am still waiting for the outrage of abortion! You do realize a partial birth abortion means they deliver a baby (who is able to live on it’s own) to his head, jam a scissors in the back of his head while he writhes in pain, suck his brains out and then throw him in a trash can! When there is that much disregard for human life, do you really think there is going to be some pastoral setting for animals? Oh, wait, sound like we are the animals. Judgement IS coming!

    I hope this gets posed, but probably won’t!

  87. Riley says:

    This will kill you, they just gave Michael Vick the key to the city in Dallas. Maybe the should give the owner of the chicken the key to his jail cell.! Oh never mind he’ll just be deported with a round trip ticket.

  88. Hank Warren says:

    Illegal aliens and their wonderful ‘culture’, yet another violation of our rights. Add it to the list of gov’t violations of our right:
    They violate the 1st Amendment by placing protesters in cages, banning books like “America Deceived II” and censoring the internet.
    They violate the 2nd Amendment by confiscating guns.
    They violate the 4th and 5th Amendment by molesting airline passengers.
    They violate the entire Constitution by starting undeclared wars for foreign countries.
    Impeach Obama and sweep out the Congress, except Ron Paul.

  97. javapoppa says:

    How do you die from being stabbed in the calf of your leg?. Those spurs must be tipped with curare.

  98. cluck u says:

    Can a chicken commit a hate crime?

  99. Marjorie Caldwell says:

    Good riddance to the moron who thinks his life is more important to him than the rooster’s is to him. I hope the animals prevail always in cases of animal cruelty.

  100. Dennis says:

    My guess is that they’ll be chokin the chicken in San Fran.

  101. Chicken Keeper says:

    I think that rooster needs to be hired by the Border Patrol.

  102. CallMeIshmael says:

    Christoff, did you know that KFC is more popular in China than McDonald’s?

  103. Steven says:

    I’m sure that rooster is dead but he has killed a sub-human piece of filth, so he has not died in vein. Greatest. Rooster. Ever.

  104. Jay Buchanan says:

    ‘California man’…. Right.

  105. RHO1953 says:

    It is apparent that our government’s willful disregard for our immigration laws are making people prejudicial!

    I’m not sure that we should be augmenting chickens with cutlery. What’s next? Frickin’ lasers?

  112. beegee says:

    Another illegal down… 25M more to go! This story proves one thing… you can’t fix stupid.

  113. Ray says:

    Rooster Control should be implemented immed.
    Guns do not kill ..Rooster do….bred killing machine.
    The new and improved assaut weapon.

  114. sbenard says:

    I call that poetic justice!

  115. Billy Bob says:

    Just proves the point: you’re better off bringing a gun to a knife fight, even if the opponent is a rooster.

  116. Bogie says:

    The Rooster was called “True Grit” we can only hope the Man(?) was illegal.
    I always root for the Bull in the bull fight too…I believe when the bull wins, they should cut off the Matadors nuts, and feed them to the bull….oaalay!
    What kind of a country has stabbing a domestic animal to death, as it’s #1 sport?
    Stay back in Mexico with all your sick violent ways, that means your gangs too.

  117. Thomas Tirrell says:

    serves the idiot right. my only hope is that more morons die this way. Good for the Rooster

  118. ragu4u says:

    Karma, baby! Karma!

  119. Anarchos says:

    I wonder if this qualifies for a Darwin award?

  120. Roberto says:

    I so enjoy the irony of the chicken winning. Because the guy’s name is Ochoa is irrelevant to anyone but an illegal alien apologist, or an American racist. Michael Vick is black, but that did not enter into it. If he had been eaten by a pit bull, the fact that he would have been dark meat doesn’t matter.

    This story would have been even more ironic and even funny if the victim was Col Sanders.

  121. tradman says:

    They say the rooster attacked the man because he said he was too chicken to fight. No charges filed against the rooster. They’ll probably just thrown him in the pen. If I hear anything more, I’ll keep you abreast. I can keep going, you know…

  122. Testicus says:

    AWESOME! this has to be the 1st time in history where an animal that size has killed a human being… did they leave the dead guy’s body out in the yard for the victor to pick at and eat?!

  123. Roze says:

    Awesome. I love it when bulls run into crowds as well. They all deserve it. Eating meat to survive and being thankful for it is one thing but getting off on seeing an animal suffer is another. This is payback.

  124. _DC_ says:

    I can’t think of a more appropriate way for someone who abuses animals to die. “No, no I think I’ll kill you instead.”

  125. marco says:

    The people who force pathetic animals into this heartless and mindless brutality are less intelligent than the animals. Drink plenty of liquor, eat all the drugs in town, lie, cheat, steal, corrupt — very nice indeed, the habit and mindset of these people. Proud to be called lowlifers? Pleased to be deemed lower in evolution than the animals? If not, then why not evolve a little?

  126. Yeeaya! says:

    Yes! This is how we can battle illegal immigration, arm the roosters!!

  127. Mark says:

    About 20 million mexis left. Do we have enough roosters with knives attached to their legs to do the job?

  128. Fart Lighter says:

    Is there not a BOC song about “Don’t Fear the Rooster”?

  129. Shrew Officeshrew says:

    too bad this doesn’t happen more often…if only all the animals that are forced to fight could seek their revenge….

  130. Harry Obrian says:

    The rooster will be pardoned and then given amnesty by 0bamma and then promptly fried and eaten by the same.

    1. Db says:

      No, he’ll be broiled. Michelle is on a health kick, remember?

  131. Texan says:

    This guy is top running for a Darwin Award 2011

  132. B. Wooster says:

    Ah, just another of the many blessings of “diversity” and “multiculturalism.”

    1. Rooster Cogburn says:

      Not all diversity is bad. For instance, I’d rally for more knife-wielding roosters patrolling our borders.

  133. michel says:

    the knife wielding roosters can be our new border patrol guards….to bad for the rooster ..he was probably pretty smart…

  134. Karen says:

    Revenge is sweet!

  135. Beverly says:

    The race of the person doesn’t matter here at all it could have been a White, black,green,yellow person…,It just doesn’t matter all that matters is it was a animal that couldn’t speak for itself and after today we will never know what happen to the rooster… Animals everywhere are getting killed or miss treated by humane race and when they step up and bite or kill one of us people have issues like it’s the animals fault…. Well if we treat them better they will treat us better…..

    1. spongebob says:

      Of course it matters if he were GREEN.

    The rooster was really Chuck Norris in a rooster suit.

    God does have a sense of humor!!!

  138. Feel bad for the Rooster says:

    At least this story had a happy ending. To bad the Rooster didn’t take out the whole crowd. What a favor it would have done society, but he got one and we should thank him for it

    I really do like stories where the top of the food chain becomes dinner for a change!

      If you want a truly racist reply I can do that for you, Rico. Otherwise sit back and absorb the criticism Mexicans have coming to them.

  161. Mercedes says:

    For what they put those poor roosters through for their profit and enjoyment, I feel the man got what he deserved…Do not feel sorry for him at all….but do feel sorry for the poor animals…Hope everyone that was there gets charged and pay for their cruelty..

  162. Farmer Bob says:

    Now we know how to solve the immigration problem: a hundred thousand “racist” roosters with switchblades.

  163. CHICKEN LITTLE says:


  164. Phillep Harding says:

    Note to the reporter: This type of rooster does not need encouragement to fight, as PeTA discovered when they released 30+ in the same barnyard.

    I sure wish I could have seen those stupid leftoid idiots faces when the inevitable happened.

  165. Radiobeams says:

    Shouldn’t we hire that Rooster? Or we could persuade him to join the Marines?

  166. John Mattos says:

    It’s sad when anyone dies, but its sadder when animals are tortured in this type of abominable way.

  167. Gail says:

    Bye bye Jose. The roosters won’t miss you, and come to think of it, neither will I.

  168. Juan says:

    Maybe the US government should buy a bunch of Roosters and replace ICE and the Border Patrol with Roosters.. After all the roosters are more effective..

    Go Rooster Go..!!!

  169. Foghorn Leghorn says:

    Somebody–Ah say somebody get stabbed!!

    A. To stab a Mexican in the leg with a knife.

  178. Sister Honky Tonk says:

    I say fry them up in some Crisco

  179. Chazz says:

    A human life is worth more than an animal life. Eff the chicken. If he decides to partake in a cruel sport . . . so what? It doesn’t mean he deserves to die. It means he should be punished according to the law. His death is an accident yet most of you would seek to spin it as justice. Has the worth of human life diminished in the public’s eye so much that we wish death upon a perfect stranger? Whatever happened to the hope of rehabilitation and redemption for those who’ve wronged society? Is it too much to ask that you seek to improve the world by fixing the people . . . rather than unjust punishment? Or do you morally equate the life of a chicken to that of a human as PETA has done in the past with their Holocaust on a plate campaign?

  180. McNugget says:

    …and that’s why you don’t play with your food.

  181. mike says:

    The man that was killed by the rooster was probably an illegal alien anyways…so justice has been served twice.

  182. Lusty Infant says:

    Why are we crying over the poor rooster? Maybe he likes what he’s doing. He get’s to strut around and show off his comb and spurs, get’s fed on a regular basis, has a comfortable place to sleep and has his choice of hot chicks to jump.

Prayers go out to this man’s family and friends.

  201. May says:

    No matter what I’m thinking of this guy & others who take part in animal abuse, I’m trying not to be happy at the loss of a human life & soul here but we reap what we sow in life. God created animals & is heart broken when they are abused. As stupid as this may sound to those who do not believe, I actually pray for abused & neglected animals whenever the thought of them comes to mind. St. Francis of Assisi is patron saint of animals & whenever I think of it, I invoke his prayers for animals. I would encourage other animal lovers to also pray for them whenever the thought of them comes to mind.

    this is interesting, the government wont build a fence to combat illegal immigrants, so the people are sending out covert roosters with weapons to do the job. Hurray.

    Why weren’t any arrests made? The owner of the rooster should be charged with murder.

    a knife attached to the leg? I was under the impression that the roosters attacked with “spurs” that were part of their legs and with their beaks

    wow the tension created by hispanics is pretty high!! Way to go, I guess we must be ahead… Unless you are native american you should not talk about being illegal, this was once Mexican territory and soon to be once again!!!! Viva Mexico!!! We along with the indians are the only true natives!!!

    1. charleton gomez says:

      mintirarosa,leteicia.the mexicans are not the true natives.the MAYANS and AZTECS were.
      you came from spain when the spanish invaded and tried to kill the indians.and also interbreeded with them.
      my mayan friend also says that there were anglos and mediterrean people BEFORE THEM in mexico thousands of years ago(he said they built the pyramids..ALSO in norte america BEFORE the american indians.kenniwick skeleton for example among hundreds of other examples.the indians admit this!!!
      stop being a racist chola.

    If the people who wrote this story would writ about all the abused children in yhe USA,we would be a lot better of

  221. Peter Ian Staker says:

    Rooster fighting is as old as human civilization, roosters fight in the wild they will just take longer to kill each other without blades, it is nice to see all the hate for a human being and “love” for a dumb animal that would peck out your eyes if given the chance. This story has become more about the seething under current of racism in America than bloodsport. So who is more primitive? Someone who engages in a bloodsport that is thousands of years old? Or the pathetic racists who only give a damn because it gives them a chance to demean another culture.

    The best thing is most people who foam at the mouth over immigration voted for Bush twice, Bush the govenor from a border state who did NOTHING for two terms, during which the most devastating attack every on American soil occured.

    Remember, Knives don’t kill people, Roosters kill people!
