A youth trains his fighting cockerel in Havana
A youth trains his fighting cockerel in Havana June 25, 2012. In Cuba, it's legal to own cocks, it's legal to train them to fight and it's legal to fight them, but since the 1959 Cuban Revolution all forms of betting and gambling have been strictly forbidden. But betting on cock fights is an activity so popular among Cubans that stopping it would pose a huge challenge for the authorities and would be counterproductive to keeping law and order.
