Cockfight is a widely popular and legal sporting event in much of Latin America. The fight is usually held in an arena (gallera in spanish) with seats for spectators. There is always gambling involved in cockfights. People take advantage of cock's natural, strong will to fight against all males of the same species. Birds are specially bred to increase their aggression and stamina, they are given the best of food and care. The cocks are equipped with tortoise-shell made gaffs tied to the bird's leg. The fight is not intentionally to the death but it may result in the death of cocks very often. (Photo by Jan Sochor/Latincontent/Getty Images)
