The sport involves two matched cocks fighting till the judges deem one cock the winner. Contrary to belief, the birds dont fight till death. Under the Taliba rule, cock fighting was considered illegal and subsequently went under ground. Since the fall of the Taliban is has once again surged in popularity. In Nov 2007 the Taliban executed 3 mens for taking part in cock fighting.
