WARNING: This video contains scenes that may upset some viewers. This video is not intended to encourage cock fighting but only to show it through the eyes of a different culture. Cock fighting is legalized in Philippines. I believe that all cultures and countries have laws or traditions that may seem ridiculous to outsiders. I often travel to Philippines and look forward to showing you more.
In many parts of the world cock fighting is portrayed as a barbaric blood sport, but in the Philippines it is a friendly activity. After the fights the owners of the birds will eat those that have died. The first scene of the video was filmed at Loboc Town on Bohol Island. Parts of the video were also filmed on Panglao Island and Balicasag Island. The final scene is at San Juan City Cock Pit arena in Manila. There are thousands of cock pits in Philippines, entrance to these events can be less than $1.
