Artist's description:

Thanks for visiting! Here's something on "cock fights" you need to know before you buy this piece!!!

A cockfight is a blood sport between two cocks, or gamecocks, held in a ring . The history of raising fowl for fighting goes back to thousands of years. These cocks are specially bred and conditioned for increased stamina and strength. Male and female chickens of such a breed are referred to as game fowl.

Cocks possess congenital aggression toward all males of the same species. Cocks are given the best of care until near the age of two years. They are conditioned, much like professional athletes, prior to events or shows. Bets are placed on the outcome of the match.Cockfighting is a blood sport due in some part to the physical trauma the cocks inflict on each other, which is usually increased by attaching metal spurs to the cocks' natural spurs. While not all fights are to the death, the cocks may endure significant physical trauma. In some areas around the world, cockfighting is still practiced as a mainstream event; in some countries it is regulated by law, or forbidden outright.

India's judiciary has ordered to ban the sport, because it violates Prevention of Cruelty to Animals act. But it remains hugely popular, especially in rural areas, with large amount of betting involved.Who else can derive entertainment in these cruel sports than humans? Left to themselves the birds would have had normal fights to guard their territories, which may not have ended in grievous injuries or death !

I donate 25% of sale proceeds of my animal paintings periodically to CUPA, PETA and such other animal welfare organisations.
