Cock Fighting Starter Kit

9:35 AM -- Got a gambling jones, but not ready to go full cock? CBS Eyewitness News reports on the weirdest thing to hit the Nutmeg State since the election of Joe Lieberman:

    Police said 150 birds were seized in a canary-fighting investigation in Shelton on Sunday.

    Police said canaries and saffron finches were seized and 19 people were arrested at a Ripton Road address.

    “There was 100 canaries fighting, and they were betting on them 'til they were dead. It’s absolutely shocking,” said neighbor Marion Sega.

    Police said they served a search warrant at the home after receiving a tip that an illegal bird fight involving 150 canaries and finches was scheduled to take place on Sunday.

    Canaries are popular beginner pet birds and saffron finches, another small species of bird, can be spiteful and intimidating.
Do not mess with saffron finches. They're the pit bulls of the songbird world.

I guess canaries must be meaner than I thought... because I'm picturing a canary "fight" lasting, like, three days, until one of them just dies of thirst.
