"My child is safer at an organized cockfight than she is at a Lobo basketball game"
was one of the comments overheard as New Mexico decided to be one of the two states to allow cockfighting. Reasons to keep cockfighting: Watching the bloody sport causes less emotional stress on children than a college basketball game and It's "part of the state's hispanic culture"
Obviously, the opposition to this mounts, but with Oklahoma
unable to send the roosters to pasture, is Cockfighting destined to remain on the fringes of America?
