CT Police Bust Bird Fighting Ring

Why do people continue to abuse animals just so they can gamble??

In Shelton, CT, police arrested 19 people in connection with a bird fighting operation. No, they were not fighting roosters!

Would you believe it was canaries??

Yep! The people were actually fighting songbirds! Apparently, while the birds are normally docile, they will act aggressively towards one another. Especially in breeding season.

When are people going to understand that you can't treat animals this way?

I completely agree and can't even imagine people would ENJOY something like that.
That being said, I totally thought this was a joke when I read about it in the local paper. Canary fights?? Seriously?!?!
As it turns out, one of the idiots that was arrested was from MA.
How humiliating.
