Louisiana senator defends ‘chicken boxing’


When debating a proposed bill in a Louisiana state Senate Committee that would make it a felony to possess certain types of cockfighting paraphernalia, Sen. Elbert Guillory (R-Opelousas), expressed concern that SB 523 could threaten “chicken boxing,” which he described as non-lethal cockfighting when birds are outfitted with spur covers rather than spur razors. Chicken boxing?
