Fighting rooster kills owner in escape bid in India


An Indian man was killed by his own fighting rooster, which was fitted with a three-inch long knife on its foot for an illegal cockfight in India.

The owner was hit in the groin by the knife when the bird tired to escape before a competition took place in Lothunur village in Telangana state earlier this week, BBC reported.

The man died on the way to hospital due to intensive bleeding.

Police after taking the rooster in custody transferred it to a farm house.

Police are now conducting raids to arrest 15 more people involved in the event. The official said that the suspect will face charges of manslaughter and holding illegal cockfight.

The rooster will also be presented in a court as evidence in coming days.
