Man Killed at Cockfight by Armed Bird

A central California man previously convicted of illegal animal fighting was killed at a cockfight after being stabbed in the leg by a bird that had a knife attached to its limb, officials confirmed Monday. Jose Luis Ochoa, 35, of Lamont, California, was declared dead at a hospital about two hours after he was injured. Ochoa and the other spectators fled when authorities arrived at the scene of the fight. Deputies found five dead roosters and other evidence of cockfighting at the location. Source

I've never heard of the cocks having knives tied to their limbs...but I'm not surprised at human's level of cruelty - that does seem like a fluke to die of being stabbed in the leg? Strange, but oh, well...I don't feel sorry for him! The world is a better place without people like him - maybe more of his sort get weeded out by those "killer" birds.
