My first Cockfight in the Philippines ???????? Cebu City – Philippines Travel Vlog Ep 25

Warning! This video is not for everyone. Cockfighting is a very common past time in the Philippines where locals gather for the purpose of betting and entertainment. It is deeply ingrained in the Filipino culture and while it may be viewed as cruel in other parts of the world, in the Philippines, it’s a normal sport. I documented this cockfight for educational purposes. Please do not get offended.

    I have no problem with cockfighting as long as they don't attached a blade to their foot.

  17. Mike Yman Hadap says:

    Which is good?
    Chicken for cockfighting: they we’re raise well with TLC,feed well with supplement and vitamins, trained well to be a good fighter, everytime they win they earn respect and leave longer, they have the chance to be breed and multiply..
    Chicken for meat: they just raise for few months never have a chance to leave and killed instantly.
    Now, which is cruelty to animal?
