Chook fighting - East Timor

Chook fighting - East Timor

It's East Timor's blood thirsty national sport a scene replicated throughout the tiny nation every afternoon around 5pm.
Father and son take their prize birds to duel with their neighbours and folk from surrounding districts. Thousands of dollars change hands in a country were $5USD is the daily wage.
In every match there is only one winner; the loser becomes someone's dinner.
