Last week was truly the last week for Jose Luis Ochoa, who was fatally stabbed in the leg by a cock.
Jose was at a fighting event in Tulare County, California, where the participants tie blades to their cocks and have them fight each other until one man’s cock is unable to continue. During the deadly fight, in which he was merely a spectator, Jose was accidentally slashed by a cock in the calf, severing an important (to Jose, anyway) blood vessel. County Sheriff’s officers had caught wind of the illegal event and very soon after the accident came crashing through the doors, sending participants and observers alike scurrying. Unfortunately for Jose, he escaped the officers and bled out from his cock-wound later that evening.
While it is rare that a man will be killed by a cock, it is hardly unheard of. Just last month a man in India was killed when he was slashed across the throat by a poorly controlled cock. Although the fighting events themselves are illegal, California has seen a steady incline as the state has failed to keep pace with the harsher legal penalties of it’s neighbors, and cocksmen have migrated there. As an example, Jose himself — a frequent participant in the ring — was fined $370 last year. A single betting pot in a smallish fight can reach $10,000. The rewards for risking your cock in combat far outweigh the legal penalties.
Of course the worst abuses happen not to the spectators, but to the cocks themselves, which are often injected with steroids and antibiotics to make them bigger and stronger for fighting. Police often target these rings as an opportunity to collect other criminals, as a man who would willingly place his own cock into this type of maltreatment is often already someone the law is interested in for other reasons.
Remember friends, cocks are dangerous, and everyone needs to know it. If you see a cock, call the authorities immediately. Never try to handle a cock by yourself, unless you have been properly trained and certified.
Just doing my part.
