A man in India was killed by a rooster during an illegal cockfight.

45-year-old Thangullah Satish was killed by a rooster with a blade tied to its leg during a cockfight.

According to abcNEWS Satish died on the way to hospital after his rooster, which had a 3-inch knife tied to its leg, fluttered in panic and slashed his groin.

“Satish was hit with the rooster’s knife in the groin and started bleeding heavily,” Police Inspector B. Jeevan told the press.

Indian police are searching for the organizers of the illegal cockfight.

Given the nature of the cockfights, Satish is not the first man in India to be murdered by a chicken.
