Cockfighting in the Philippines

The tension amongst the audience is high. Money is at stake. If your roaster is the strongest, its your lucky day. You win the jackpot of $6000,-!

They attach little sharp knifes on their feet. They pull a few feathers from their skin to make them aggressive. Their heads are briefly put together so they can bite each others neck. Then the nfight begins!

The battle only takes a few minutes before one of the roasters dies in the arena. 

Every Saturday men gather in the arena. It’s a day to relax, drink beer, smoke cigarettes and gamble. The little money they make during week disappears into dust when they lose the game.

The biggest losers are the roasters. Either they die or they are put back in their cage with open wounds.
