A police officer killed by a rooster when a fight broke out



Police in northern Samar province say Lieutenant Christian Bolok was hit by a rooster’s blunder, a metal blade attached to a fighting bird.

The blunder hit Bolok’s femoral artery while he confiscated the bird, police said, adding: “He was rushed to a provincial hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival due to severe blood loss.”

The Philippines has a long history of both legal and illegal fighting, but the sport was banned in the region in August after being identified as a source of Covid-19 infections.

The rooster is equipped with a razor-sharp blade when fighting a rooster in the Philippines.

Illegal combat attacks in the country are known as “tupada” and often operate in underground places to avoid detection by the authorities.

“I have a heavy heart because we lost a brother who sacrificed his own life in the name of the service,” North Samar provincial police director Arnel Apud said in a statement sent to the government-run Philippine news agency. “(Philippine National Police) mourns the untimely death of Lieutenant Bolok and expresses its deepest sympathy for his family and relatives.”

Three people were arrested during the incident and three more suspects have been identified, but remain at large after avoiding the attack, the Philippine News Agency reported.

Officers confiscated seven roosters and recovered 550 pesos ($ 11).

Bolok police released photos of a memorial service for the police officer on Wednesday.
