Police in Conneticut last week broke up a bird fighting ring and arrested 19 people who were gambling on the illegal avian battles.
OK, I'm really opposed to animal cruelty but there's a dark humorous side to this story: the birds, which were confiscated were all canaries and finches. battling canaries? You're kidding ne, right?
Be still my twisted mind. Can't you see it now?
A buffed up canary flying at its opponent, landing, then hitting its opponent with soft wings while shouting in a deep Tweety bird voice, "I'm gonna kick your stubby cowardly yellow feathered butt!"
And Fighting finches? I so just don't want to go there.
You can't make this stuff up; it's just too bizarre, even for me:
Read it yourself: here
It's just so wrong on every level. but I'd bet $50 bet my gangsta hummming birds could kick the canaries' and finches' butt any day of the week. they're so mean and buff they makethe local hawks to flee screaming for respite.--Jim Forbes on 07/28/2009
