Default Cockfighting rings

Saw an article about a federal criminal trial involving pit bull fighting and got me to thinking about whether anyone still operates fighting cock rings? I've never been to one but have heard stories from the oldtimers about how popular they were out in the country back in the day. Anybody know anything about them?

They still exist in urban areas.

Assuming we are talking about animals fighting....

If not, carry on. I have no knowledge.

Plenty of chicken fighting goes on in Upstate SC, and mountains of NC/TN. Don't know the specifics on the fight locations, but easy to pick out the guys raising birds. Right out in the open.

south Florida is big with cock fights! it seems to be more of a Spanish/Latino sport, so if the area has a large population if that nationality, you can bet you will have a cock fight somewhere in the neighborhood!

Quite a bit of money in making the gaffs.

This is directly across the road from one of our timber tracts. On a major road, but kinda out in the sticks. The barrels in the back of the house are rooster houses. Dead giveaway is individual roosters on leg shackles/cables with individual houses, typically made out of poly drums. Pic sucks, but this is from google street view.

There is one in San Juan that is a "professional" operation. Building with a sign on it, etc.

They definitely have it going on in Hawaii...a guy I used to work with would go whenever he was there. Popular amongst the pinoys.
