Rats? Dogs? The City Veterinarian, the owner as well as the farm helper are still in a quandary as to the perpetrators in the deaths of several fighting cocks at a gamefowl breeder farm in Pasil, Kauswagan, Cagayan de Oro City.

In a Manila Bulletin article, a second attack last Tuesday night killed 10 more roosters whose breasts were reportedly torn open by suspected rats as big as cats. This followed the first attack last July 28 which killed 33 roosters.

Dr. Perla Asis of the City Veterinary Office, inspected the remaining body parts of the roosters and believed the predators were big rats. A farm helper meanwhile saw a large black dog in the area which could have been the culprit.
