Rainbow Cock Fighting Comes to End - 46 birds killed in San Diego California, misdemeanor criminal defense lawyers say

Possessing game cocks for fighting is not a DUI but its bad intentions and sad animal consequences may have deeper moral implications than the run-of-the-mill DUI, California drunk driving criminal defense lawyers maintain.

Cock fighting is a misdemeanor in California under Penal Code Section 597(j), say criminal defense attorneys who also handle misdemeanor cases.

It means there is gambling with two or more specially bred birds put inside an enclosure. Death is the end result.  One of the cocks is killed.



A Rainbow Cock fighting ring was uncovered and shut down today at 47000 Rainblow Glen Road between San Diego County and Riverside County.  It happened during a probationary search.   San Diego Sheriff's deputies arrested thirty-nine year old Blanca Campos for possession of drug paraphernalia and an outstanding warrant.

Rolando Carbajal, forty-seven years of age, got popped for possessing cocks for fighting.  46 birds were euthanized.
