A Mild Bit of Poetic Justice From the Animal Kingdom

Posted By on Tue, Feb 8, 2011 at 11:07 AM

Cockfighting is about as deplorable as acts between man and animals get, so there's seemingly some karmic retribution going on here:

A man attending an illegal cockfight died after being stabbed by a rooster.

The incident occurred during a cockfight in which birds are strapped with razor-like knives to fight each other, often times to their death.

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.

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

[...]

According to the Bakersfield Californian, this was not the victim's first cockfight.

Last year, Ochoa paid $370 in fines after pleading no contest to one count of owning or training an animal for fighting, according to Kern County Superior Court records.
