Civilized Cock Fights

I was reading AM New York today and ran across this article on the front page:

Oklahoma state Sen. Frank Shurden, a longtime defender of cock-fighting, is suggesting that roosters be given little boxing gloves so they can fight without bloodshed. Shurden wants to save Oklahoma’s gamefowl industry now that cock-fighters are legally prohibited from pitting birds fitted with razor-like spurs. “Who’s going to object to chickens fighting like humans do? Everybody wins,” Shurden said.

Wow. Not quite sure what else to say.
