 Description:   Together with Muay Thai, Cock Fighting has been a sport in Thailand for hundreds of years. It all started with King Narasuan in the 16th Century who bred birds for cock fighting. It is a bloody sport where the birds often fight to the death. Deadly metal spikes were attached to the legs and razors fixed to the wings. If the loser didnít die outright then it would end up in the cooking pot. The meat of fighting cocks are apparently high in protein and very tasty. Cock fighting takes place all over the country and it goes hand-in-hand with gambling. It mainly takes place in rural areas and is a popular sport with Thai farmers. However, in recent years, there has been a campaign to clean up the sport and to bring it into the modern age.
