Video: ESPN’s E:60 Undercover Texas Cockfighting Investigation

As noted previously ESPN’s award-winning news-magazine program E:60 did an undercover report on illegal cockfighting in Texas high lighting Representative Wayne Christian’s bill, HB 1043, that would close the loopholes in the cockfighting laws in Texas.  Below is the video from ESPN.

The day after the ESPN story aired the bill passed the Texas House, it is still awaiting action in the Senate.

In other cockfighting related news, a couple months ago a man attending a cockfight was actually killed by one of of the birds with a knife attached to its leg.
