The city of Rincon, Puerto Rico is planning to build a state of the art Cockfighting arena or "Gallera" in the quiet residential neighborhood called Puntas.   The Mayor of Rincon has said publicly he does not care if the residents of the neighborhood and city do not want this, he is building it.  Therefore, we can only rely on the courts to stop this.  Fighting in the courts takes money for Professionals.

Despite the unethical treatment of it's animals, cockfighting is a popular "Gentelman's Sport" in Puerto Rico with a long cultural tradition.

We oppose any new Gallera in Rincon, but particularly in this neighborhood, close to houses, schools and churches.  The Gallera will bring gambling, alcohol and hundereds of roosters each month into the neighborhood. 

According to the World Health Organization, cockfighting, is suspected of spreading the highly lethal bird flu virus from poultry to humans through contact with blood, feces and droplets of fluid.

We are asking for help to fund environmental and legal challenges to the building of this new Gallera, please consider a donation.

El pueblo de Rincón, Puerto Rico está planeando construir una "Gallera", en el tranquilo barrio residencial de Puntas.  Ellos alcalde de Rincón ha dicho públicamente que no le importa si los vecinos del barrio y de la ciudad no quieren esto, se está construyendo. Por lo tanto, sólo podemos confiar en los tribunales para detener esto. La lucha en los tribunales necesita dinero para profesionales.

Según la Organización Mundial de la Salud, se sospecha que las peleas de gallos propagan el virus de la gripe aviar altamente letal a los seres humanos a través del contacto con sangre, heces y gotas de líquido.

A pesar del tratamiento no ético de los animales, las peleas de gallos son un deporte popular en Puerto Rico con una larga tradición cultural.

Nos oponemos a cualquier nueva Gallera en Rincón, pero especialmente en este barrio, cerca de casas, escuelas e iglesias. La Gallera traerá con ella el juego, alcohol y posiblemente el virus.

Estamos pidiendo ayuda para financiar los desafíos ambientales y legales para la construcción de este nuevo Gallera, por favor considere hacer una donación.
