KATIE DAVIS FROM THE SUN
TWO men have been killed by knife-wielding chickens during brutal cockfights.
They bled to death at packed shows in India after being slashed by the birds, which had blades strapped to their feet.
The first victim was tying blades to his rooster’s feet ahead of a fight in Kakinada, Andhra Pradesh when, scared by the crowd, it started flapping.
It sliced his leg and wrist, causing him to start bleeding heavily.
The 43-year-old was rushed to hospital, where he died.
Meanwhile, a 20-year-old man was in the audience of a cockfight in East Godavari when he was pounced on by one of the featured critters.
It left deep cuts on his body, and he died on the way to hospital, reports New Indian Express.
Cops are investigating both deaths.
Cockfighting is popular in India’s South-East, with many people watching shows during the Hindu festival Sankranti – which falls on January 15.
