Animal Fighting Network Broken Up; Deathmatches Featured... Canaries and Finches

It's a Brazilian immigrant thing.

Just proving once again that The White Man makes all the pleasures of animal ownership illegal for all other racial groups, while continuing to permit cat shows.

Police arrested 19 people from Connecticut, Massachusetts and New Jersey and seized 150 birds in a house raid on an alleged bird-fighting operation. Most of the birds were saffron finches, which are small birds native to South America, and a few were canaries, officials said.

...

Authorities often deal with cock fighting, but police and animal experts said they had not heard of fighting involving finches and canaries before.

"We're blazing new territory," said Wayne Kasacek, an assistant director with the Connecticut Department of Agriculture. "This is something for law enforcement and for us to learn about."

Kasacek said some of the birds had previous injuries, including blindness in at least one eye, and may have to be euthanized.

The 19 people, all originally from Brazil, were charged with cruelty to animals and gambling. Police also charged the homeowner, 42-year-old Jurames Goulart, with interfering with officers.

Goulart denied the charges, saying he had the birds for singing.

"I take care of the birds," he told The Associated Press. "They're like my son."

Mr. Goulart's son is kept in a cage, is blind in both eyes, has a rich blue-green hue, and answers to the name "Mr. ImPeckable."
