Fighting cock intentionally injured by owner to ensure win

MASBATE—A cockfighting aficionado was arrested by fellow cockers when it was discovered that he intentionally injured the left leg of his fighting cock to ensure outright defeat.

In the outrage of bettors, the suspect, Elvis Pillejera y Atendido, was subjected to citizen’s arrest and  brought to the police station to face criminal charges for Swindling.

This incident happened on June 19 at around 4:30 in the afternoon at Gallera de Baleno Cockpit Arena, Barangay Potoson, Baleno.

The investigation shows that the cockers noticed that the left leg of the suspect’s fighting cock was already damaged due to an intentional injury prior to the fight.

Bettors alleged that the suspect’s fighting cock was finding difficulty in movement due to muscle or nerve function damage.

The controversy was so pronounced because the cockfight involves a bet amounting to P52,800.
Specifically, police investigators are looking at the provisions of Article 315 of the Revised Penal Code (Estafa) as the law that the suspect could have violated.

The suspect was detained pending thorough investigation.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM
