What the cock?

Dear Diary: 
 
I may have made the weirdest discovery ever in my neighbourhood yesterday while I was walking Blue.  I understand that it was just Cinco De Mayo and that I live in a neighbourhood where there's all night Mexican Karaoke parties, but I don't expect you ever get used to finding the body of a beautiful, yet very dead rooster in a box behind one's house.  At first when I saw the box in the graveyard I thought, "that's weird, it wasn't here yesterday".  Then I thought "why is Blue paying it so much attention?"  And even though as I was walking up to it, knowing that there was going to be something dead in it, I just had to look .  Honestly, I thought I'd find a box of kittens or puppies, abandoned and left for dead, which would have been bad enough, but finding that beautiful cockerel really threw me for a loop!  Why was it there? Did it die of old age? Who left it there? And why behind my house?  Then as I was telling a friend about it last night, I realised this bird was a victim of cock fighting!  In my very own hood!  I might have to start some vigilante justice sweeps of the hood from time to time with Blue.  I really thought this type of thing only happened in the movies or in little towns in Mexico.  This is the 78721 for God's sake! WTF?
