As with the recent case of the man shot by a fox he was beating to death, it is hard to work up sympathy for the late Jose Luis Ochoa, 35, who died from a cut from one of the chickens he was training for illegal cockfighting.
In Lamont, Calif., one of the chicken cut Ochoa on the right calf after he attached razors for fighting. It cut a major artery.
Ochoa paid $370 in fines last year after pleading no contest to one count of owning or training an animal for fighting.
Obviously, no one celebrates the death of a man for his own unlawful act. However, Ochoa clearly would not be deterred from harming birds and engaging in the blood sport that ultimately claimed his own life. Satisfying? No. Ironic? Yes.
