Cock Fighting Series:

I’ve decided to start shooting and posting mini photojournalism stories, this weeks will be a Thai cock fight. A cockfight is a combat sport between two specially trained roosters held in a ring called a cockpit.The combatants, known as gamecocks are not typical farm chickens. The roosters are specially bred and trained for increased stamina and strength.
Cockfighting is considered a traditional sporting event by some, and an example of animal cruelty by others. Usually wagers are made on the outcome of the match, with the surviving or last-bird-standing being declared the winner
