Man Dies In Cock Fighting Incident

Honestly, I gotta say, “Way To Go Rooster!” Seems like sweet justice for the rooster and all the other animals this guy bred for fighting.

DELANO, Calif. — A Central California man who was at a cockfight died after being stabbed in the leg by a bird that had a knife attached to its own limb, officials confirmed Monday.

Jose Luis Ochoa, 35, of Lamont, was declared dead at a hospital about two hours after he was injured in neighboring Tulare County on Jan. 30, the Kern County coroner said.

An autopsy concluded Ochoa died of an accidental “sharp force injury” to his right calf.

Sheriff’s spokesman Ray Pruitt said it was unclear if a delay in seeking medical attention contributed to Ochoa’s death.
