Jose Ochoa died after a rooster stabbed him in the leg during an illegal cockfight near Tulare County, Calif.
The rooster had a razor-like knife attached to its leg, which the birds use to fight each other to the death, notes LA Weekly.
Ochoa may have lost too much blood by fleeing the police and waiting to be taken to the Delano Regional Medical Center.
“I have never seen this type of incident,” Sgt. Martin King told the Bakersfield Californian. “People have been known to bleed out from those injuries if medical attention is not obtained immediately.”
Ochoa has been charged previously for training roosters for cockfights, but he and other participants fled when police arrived. Police have found several dead roosters but have not arrested anyone yet.
