ZAMBOANGA, Philippines (AP) -- A rooster about to be set loose for a bout in a crowded cockfighting arena attacked its handler with the razor-sharp steel spikes strapped to its legs, killing the stunned man, police said Tuesday.

The gaffs hit the man's thigh and groin as the bird made one rapid shuffle, causing him to bleed profusely Sunday before a large crowd of shocked spectators, police investigator Johnny Muhajil said.

Especially the dog fights.

I am guessing the bird 'hit a nerve' with his handler, or perhaps even more likely, an artery!

There is a form of dog fighting in Japan that is very cool.
No biting, no barking, no blood. If they show teeth, they're disqualified. ZIf the dog takes more than three steps away from his opponent - disqualified. Tosa Token, or Tosa's run up over 200lbs & they dress them up in the same Sumo regalia. It basically is dog sumo wrestling.
