ARM investigators have closed down several cockfighting rings in South Florida and are in the process of infiltrating and exposing additional operations locally and far a field in Mexico.

Cock fighting is illegal in the USA although it is still legal in Mexico and something ARM aims to change. As with all of ARM’s gritty investigations, cockfighting is still being practiced due to a lack of local enforcement through out the United States. The cruel and sadistic ‘blood sport’ generally takes place in backyard establishments across the United States and in stadium like atmospheres abroad.

People attend these ‘games’ to bet on which rooster will make the final kill. The sport is rigged and extremely unfair and although roosters naturally fight over food, pecking order and mates in the wild, the razor sharp blades and daggers that are attached to their bodies makes it impossible for both of the birds to come out of the battle alive. They fight till the death while spectators stand around and cheer on this gruesome display of animal cruelty.
