The Valenzuela government cooked the confiscated roosters from an illegal cockfight into a delicious chicken adobo.
Authorities arrested a group organized a cockfight derby amid the enhanced community quarantine in Valenzuela City.
Aside from this, the local government also ordered to cook the roosters immediately they caught in the illegal derby, based on the social media post of Valenzuela City Mayor Rex Gatchalian.
It was Sunday morning when law enforcers arrested around 12 suspects. Their roosters were confiscated and cooked as well.
“So sa mga gusto pa magpatupada dyan I will make sure na mahuli kayo, makulong at maluto na adobo mga alaga niyo. So I suggest ‘wag niyo na ever subukan,” said Gatchalian in a tweet.
(So those who want to organize a cockfight derby, I will make sure that you would be caught, you will be jailed, and your chicken will be cooked into adobo. So I suggest you never try.)
Mass gatherings under the enhanced quarantine community in Central Luzon are now prohibited. There is also a charge in the case of illegal cockfighting.
Meanwhile, in Manila, suspects conducting illegal cockfighting were also arrested at the top of the building in Sta. Cruz.
The suspects thought they could hide from the eyes of the barangay guards. But authorities were able to track them because of the roosters’ constant cries. The suspects tried to flee while holding their roosters, but the police already caught them.
During the Holy Week, authorities also arrested at least ten residents of Barangay Addition Hills in Mandaluyong after they were caught watching an alleged cockfight.
“Sa kabila ng umiiral na krisis sa ating bansa, nagkakagulo ang daigdig kung paano natin matatalo ang COVID-19, mayroon pang ganitong mga taong mga hangal, bastos, walang modo, hindi sumusunod sa gobyerno nakuha pa nilang magsabong,” said Lt. Col. Reynaldo Magdaluyo ng Manila Police District Station 3.
(Despite the current crisis in our country, the world is raving about how we can defeat COVID-19, there are still such people who are stupid, rude, uneducated, non-governmental, they have managed to join a cockfight.)
The arrested suspects will face illegal cockfighting charges and violations of the guidelines of the enhanced community quarantine.
