back to article Man killed by own cock

A Bengali man has reportedly suffered a gruesome demise after he pushed his metal-enhanced cock that bit too far. Singrai Soren, a trainer of fighting roosters, was killed in Mohanpur in West Bengal after one of his birds apparently turned on him, the Daily Mail soberly relates. According to a friend, Soren forced the …

    Man equips animal with unpleasant weapons and tries to force it to kill other animals.

    Animal turns on man and kills him instead.

      i think Sarah's channelling Lester today.

  7. George Nacht

    So, was he using....

    ...his tongue to push the cock back to ring? Otherwise, unless these razors were fixed to the wings of the bird, instead of talons, I have hard time imagining how did he came close enough for throat slitting experience.

    I mean, if it was dog fighting ring, and that man was attacked and killed by his pitbull, OK, but rooster?

    That being said, this is exactly the same type of entertaiment, enjoyed by the same type of people, who get exactly the same amount of sympathy from me.

    2. Donald Atkinson

      Never been on a farm have you?

      First talons are on a bird's toes. Second the blades are attached to the birds feet, roosters jump at their target feet first. Third, roosters are big and notoriously mean critters, unless you have handled them you really can't imagine.

    Speaking as an animal trainer ...

    You can't force nature. Critters do what critters do. All I can do (as a trainer) is encourage their natural behavior. Trying to force them outside that envelope only leads to tears.

    Now ask me why my bird & I are happily married ... and will stay that way.

      The cock sliced the throat of its owner, it's a great sport! Same thing with corridas, if there was a fair chance to see toreros getting gored routinely, I'd start watching that too.

    Do Prince Alberts count as metal enhanced..

    My second question...what do people with Prince Albert's do at metal detectors at airports?

    Do they carry around with them a doctor's certificate stating they have PA's and then just hand that to the security guard?

    May be to have a PA you have to be mentally challanged, and covered in tattoos and so you don't have a well paid job, and therefore can't afford to go on holiday and take an aeroplane flight, so problem solved.

    Goes to show...

    As we've all been told before, if you mishandle your cock it may cause you trouble, and just might result in serious injury. Of course, anyone dumb enough to strap razors to their cock is just begging for a slit.

    All right, I'm going. No need to phone the cops...

    Never underestimate a cornered chicken.

    If they were much bigger, no metal blades would be necessary for them to exact revenge on abusive owners.

    Here we have a fairly bright bird armed to the teeth, so to speak, versus a human who's a few cups short of a pint. I'm actually surprised this doesn't happen more often. It's a little disappointing really.

    life insurance claim by his wife

    To Whom it may concern

    My husband was using his cock to fight other cocks. Then he added razor blades to his cock to inflict maximum damage to the other cocks. His cock did not want to cock-fight when he pushed it into the cockring., so he had to struggle with his cock. His cock attacked him and the razor blades severed his neck. His cock is missing.

    Insurance company

    Dear Mrs #####,

    thankyou for your application for insurance claim for your husbands cock. Please supply evidence that he actually owned a cock and used it in the cockring for cockfighting. Our policy does not give coverage for self inflicted injury It is unclear in your claim whether he used his cock or his COCK for the fights. If he used his cock, we may be able to accommodate you claim for death by cock. If he was in the habit of fighting with his COCK, then unfortunately we cannot as this is classified as self abuse under our policy, clause respectfully we require a picture of his cock and his COCK to determine the cause of death. A photo of the cockring in question when he used his cock (COCK) for the fight may also be useful.
