    19 arrested in Canary Fighting Investigation

    The world is safe now..
    19 Arrested In Canary-Fighting Investigation
    100 Birds Seized In Shelton, Police Say

    POSTED: 1:28 pm EDT July 26, 2009
    UPDATED: 7:39 pm EDT July 26, 2009


    SHELTON, Conn. -- Police said 150 birds were seized in a canary-fighting investigation in Shelton on Sunday.

    Police said canaries and saffron finches were seized and 19 people were arrested at a Ripton Road address.

    “There was 100 canaries fighting, and they were betting on them 'til they were dead. It’s absolutely shocking,” said neighbor Marion Sega.

    Police said they served a search warrant at the home after receiving a tip that an illegal bird fight involving 150 canaries and finches was scheduled to take place on Sunday.

    Canaries are popular beginner pet birds and saffron finches, another small species of bird, can be spiteful and intimidating.

    Police said 150 canaries and finches, their cages and $8,000 in cash was seized from the Ripton Road home.

    If you think this is some kind of joke, like I did, see attached link.
    This is CRAZY!!!

    I thought bird-fighting is only in Vietnam and China. My brother-in-law has a few of his own in Saigon... If you guys think your brown-reds are fast... .

    I'd expect a bust like this to happen in California as many Chinese and Vietnamese are there (beta fish fighting is big too), but Connecticut? I thought that's where all the white folks live?

    The ones in the stores are the colorful ones. Real Game Bettas, are like good gamefowl. I wanted to order some GAME BETTAS about 40 years ago. But the price to ship from Thailand for winning lines was more then I wanted to spend. Just did a search for fighting Betas from Thailand and they were all show betas.

    I killed some bacteria around the toilet today. Someone should call the germ huggers on me. GERM LIVES MATTER.
    Lets not forget ticks, bed bugs, mosquitoes, aphids, grasshoppers, lice and fleas have a right to live just as much as any other living entity on this earth does.

    grey/dom, what was the penalty for fighting bugs, if you were caught. The fighting quail on youtube, looked like fun.

    When I first read this I laughed for five minutes. But seriously where does the line get drawn. If I put two fire ants in on one carpenter ant could I be arrested for ant fighting.
