The Philippine National Police has expressed its grief over the killing of a police officer during a raid on an illegal “Duke Wrestling” session in San Jose, in the northern province of Samar, last Monday.
Lieutenant Christian Bullock, the officer in charge of the San Jose Municipal Police Station, died during a raid on the village of Mandogang when a wrestling cock stabbed him with his spear in his left thigh, causing serious injury to the femoral artery, the largest artery in the human body.
Pollock was hit by a spear – a sharp steel blade attached to the rooster’s leg – while the bird was confiscated.
The officer was immediately transferred to a local hospital, but was pronounced dead upon arrival, the official news agency reported.
“I have a heavy heart because we lost a brother who sacrificed his life while performing the service,” County Police Director Arnelle Aboud said in a statement.
The National Progressive Party also expressed its sorrow over the sudden death of First Lieutenant Pollock, and offered its deepest condolences to his family and relatives.
Based on reports from the residents concerned, the police launched the raid at 1:20 pm, resulting in the arrest of three men who had participated in the illegal “cockfights” while others fled in different directions.
In addition to the three detainees, the police identified three other violators who are still at large.
The team also confiscated seven fighting roosters, two javelin combos and wager funds totaling 550 Philippine pesos ($ 11.33).
Earlier, the Northern Samar Province government issued a strict warning against illegal cockfights after it was confirmed that four amateurs in 2019 were infected with the disease (Covid-19) caused by the emerging corona virus.
Governor Edwin Ongchuan repeated his directive to the local police to arrest those involved in this illegal activity, known as “Tobada”, regardless of their economic status.
The official released the statement after four Tobada amateurs were infected when they participated in illegal activity on 23 and 25 August in Bobon town.
Cockfights are regulated by Presidential Decree No. 449, signed on May 9, 1974.
Before the health crisis linked to the Corona pandemic, activity was only permitted in licensed yards during Sundays and legal holidays and during local holidays for a period of no more than three days.
