Supposed ‘animal rights’ organizations are not populated with farm experts, that I know of. If they were, I would not be writing this book. In thirty seven years, I have never had an issue over my game fowl, but because of the power that animal rights groups have been given, they apparently can just come to a farm and take away a person’s life over unproven allegations.
Excerpt from the book, Game Fowl and the Foul Truth, by Tommy Carrano:
The truth is game fowl were once bred as fighting chickens. They have been around since, and even before the days of Christ. Being of Italian decent, I have done some reading on cock fighting in Rome. It was a huge sport and even the Romans had coins made with roosters on them. Many of the forefathers of this country enjoyed the game fowl. People from all walks of life; poor, rich, black, white, Latino, Asian and so on can be found to have an interest in game fowl. This chapter is not to get into all of the histories and how far back game fowl go, but to shed some light on how we go forward with the preservation of these ancient breeds. As of now, cock fighting is illegal in all fifty states on a federal level.
It would be nice to see our agricultural organizations bring education to the game fowl communities. I worked with my New York Farm Bureau for a number of years trying to promote the poultry shows and we had a member of our organization saying that they should make cock fighting legal. This man obviously did not understand the seriousness of the crime that cock fighting is.
There are certain things that people need to understand about an actual working farm, especially a game fowl farm. When my farm was raided, I was being criminalized over regular farm practices; dubbed fowl, razor sharp spurs being dubbed down etc. If you ask me, labeling ordinary animal farming practices as criminal is what should be criminal.
I understand it is, in part, due to a lack of education in the agricultural field. Supposed ‘animal rights’ organizations are not populated with farm experts, that I know of. If they were, I would not be writing this book. In thirty seven years, I have never had an issue over my game fowl, but because of the power that animal rights groups have been given, they apparently can just come to a farm and take away a person’s life over unproven allegations. This is not justice and definitely not what anyone’s tax money is intended for.
Tommy Carrano, the upstate New York chicken farmer whose birds were confiscated by the ASPCA and put into dank, cramped holding facilities under the false premise that he was raising fighting cocks, tells his story to Trent Loos of Rural Route Radio.
