    The body of a man who attended an illegal cockfight now lays limp, after being stabbed by a rooster.

    The Delano, California, man was attending the cockfight with several friends, when suddenly one of the battling roosters attacked his leg.

    Reports indicate the crowd did their best to discourage the flailing and disheveled foul, but the rooster’s deft moves and agile feints were the product of several month’s fighting experience. No one could call the rooster from the man and it became a battle of man versus beast.

    The bird had a knife attached to its own limb. It was this very knife that mortally wounded 35-year-old Jose Luis Ocho.

    Irony defined the knife-fight, as this man went from being spectator to headliner at the illegal event.

    The Kern Country coroner reported the man was declared dead two hours later, due to traumatic injures incurred within Tulare County on January 30.

    According to CBS sources, the autopsy revealed the man died from accidental “sharp force injury” to his right calf.

    There is concern that this man’s life could have been saved, if he was transported without delay to a medical facility. It is unwarranted or unconfirmed if there was an actual delay in getting medical assistance to the Hispanic male, perhaps for fear of being associated with the illegal cockfight. Sheriff’s spokesman Ray Pruitt stated the circumstances of the event are still being investigated.

    Cockfighting is an illegal sport in the United States of America. In many Latin American countries, the sport is legalized and features two birds forced to fight each other within a confined ring, with the fight usually not ending until one bird dies from its wounds.
