Ex-Premier League Prodigy Arrested for Illegal Cock FIghting

Published

The Brazilian ex player Fabio Rochemback has been arrested over suspicion on being involved in an illegal cock-fighting ring.

Cockfight

He was once a e Barcelona prodigy and former Middlesbrough star. Rochemback is said to have been held after police raided an alleged fighting event where 89 roosters were confiscated along with around £25,000 in cash.

Around 57 out of 147 people were arrested and charged with environmental crime, including Fabio.

The time of jail could be between three months to one year.

However it is not the first time Rochemback is implicated in a crime like this. Back in 2011 his farm was raided and it was discovered, he had fighting cocks.

Cockfighting is a blood sport, usually between two cocks, held in a ring called a cockpit.

It was banned in England back in 1835, and in Scotland in 1895, although critics say it continues today, underground in the UK and abroad.

A driver in Chongqing, China found a stray dog lying in his parking space, so he decided to give the dog a kicking. The man’s neighbor saw the kicking and decided to document the aftermath.

The dog may have taken a kicking but later on, the same neighbor who witnessed it photographed the stray’s return with a pack of his friends.

The pack of dogs then took their revenge by wrecking the guy’s car.

They chewed up the bodywork and tore the windscreen wipers off. The startled neighbor showed the man the evidence the next day to prove that it was the work of a pack of dogs.

China currently has no animal cruelty laws and strays are sometimes picked off the street and made to enter dog fights. There is also a famous “dog eating festival” where people actually cook and eat dogs. There is also a belief among some in China that causing the animal the most amount of pain enhances the taste and quality of meat eaten by humans.

However things are changing and China is seeing the growth of a nascent animal rights movement, with public opinion very slowly shifting.
