The Wider Image: Business and pleasure at Cuba's cockfighting arenas
Though it is banned in many parts of the world, cockfighting is favored throughout the Caribbean and in Cuba its popularity is growing. Last year, Ciego de Avila opened its first official cockfighting arena with 1,000 seats, the largest in Cuba, to the dismay of animal rights activists who see it as a step backward. Cockfighting is a blood sport because of the harm cocks do to each other in cockpits, exacerbated by metal spurs that can be attached to birds' own spurs. After the 1959 revolution, Cuba cracked down on cockfighting as part of a ban on gambling, recalls Ferrel. Over the years that stance has softened. Official arenas have opened and hidden arenas are tolerated as long as there are no brawls. REUTERS/Alexandre Meneghini SEARCH "CUBA COCKFIGHTING" FOR THIS STORY.
