Lieutenant Christine Bolok was struck by the rooster’s gaff – a razor-sharp steel blade which is typically attached to the leg of fighting roosters.

The blade cut through his left thigh and cut through the femoral artery. He was taken to the hospital and declared dead on arrival.

 

Cockfighting was banned during the virus epidemic.

 

According to the government of The Philippine News Agency (PNA), before the outbreak, it was only allowed in licensed cockpits on Sundays and public holidays, and local festivals, which lasted a maximum of three days.

 

The provincial police chief, Colonel Arnel Apud, told AFP news agency that the accident was “unfortunate”, describing it as “a piece of misfortune I cannot explain”.

 

“When I was first reported to me, I couldn’t believe it. For the first time in 25 years as a police, I lost a man to the spur of the fighting cock.”

 

The PNA said the police chief also sent “deepest sympathy” to the victim’s family.

 

Three men were arrested and seven fighting roosters, two sets of gaff and 550 Philippine Peso ($ 11; £ 8) were captured, PNA reported.

 

The other three suspects are still free.

 

Cockfighting is popular in the Philippines and often draws large crowds that bet the outcome of fights between birds.

 

During the coronavirus epidemic, it was banned, along with other sports and cultural events, to prevent large crowds from gathering and spreading the contagion.

 

The terrible accident that happened in the northern state of Samar on Monday occurred when Lieutenant Christian Bolok received a gamecock while gathering evidence of the illegal incident.

 

Colonel Arnel Apud, the provincial police chief, told AFP that his knife hit his left thigh and died of blood loss.

 

“It was an unfortunate accident, and it was part of a misfortune I couldn’t explain,” said Apud.

 

“When I was first reported to me, I couldn’t believe it. For the first time in 25 years as a police, I lost a man to the spur of the fighting cock.”

 

Apud added that the raid in the town of San Jose, where Bolok was chief of police, arrested three people and seized two groups of spurs.
