I got invited to a cock fight; should I go?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Been before. The eventual loser was coughing up blood and pushed back in while trying to escape. Once it died the owner smashed it against some trees in anger before chucking it in the Mekong.

Maybe they are more serious about it out in the provinces but regardless i hope to avoid those in the future.

I would not go for any reason. Killing for food is one thing, cruelty for sport is another...and something I won't ever participate in.

I'd go for sure. Kinda jealous as I'd like to check that one off the experience list.

Somethings I do just for the story/experience even though I may not feel 100% right about it. Like the time I tried dog meat. Wasn't craving it, just did it to say I did it, possibly a bit immature and morally vague but "I yam what I yam" to quote Popeye. Funny thing is, my Pops is a Veterinarian, so needless to say I didn't write home about that one.

The one thing I've heard about cock fights though is to make sure you don't cross streams............. I'll get my coat.
