PETA Protests Chinese Cock Soccer

(Liaoning Province, China) Perpetually-outraged PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) are currently complaining about cock soccer.

The soccer-playing cocks were the idea of Zhang Lijun of China back as she noticed the roosters had a good time when allowed to play with balls (pic).

She started throwing them mini-soccer balls to kick around a few years ago and was amazed how they reacted to them.

The entrepreneur is now organizing and holding mini-tournaments on the ancient streets of Shenyang, which is located in Liaoning province in northeast China.

She stated the roosters donít take any dives like some of the sportís prima donnas do and are glad to play for chickenfeed.

PETA President Ingrid Newkirk said the cocks are being exploited and abused.
