Los Fregados de Craigslist

While I know it is completely legal to sell roosters and grinders, what is up with labeling or describing their illegal uses??

For my monolingual readers, “Vendo Gallos de Pelea” means “I sell cockfighting roosters.” (Gotta love how Laredo’s craigslist does English and Spanish.) And, yes, it is still a very popular competition (game? sport? cruelty to animals activity??) but it is usually underground in the U.S. We are about due for a cockfighting bust, no?? I figure since not many are willing to cross into Nuevo Laredo for the big cockfights in el Palenque, not even for the ExpoMex Fair coming up in September. Even their website is a little out of date but it starts off with past announcements of a 2009 pelea de gallos.

As far as the other photo, you can figure it out on your own. Laredo’s Craigslist is still pitiful with loads of scams but you do come up with a gem or two now-and-then. This is not one of them.

    Haha. I saw that the other day. It’s like when the mayor’s wife thanked the canoneros for helping them win the election. Yeah, if you had to pay people to deliver you votes, I wouldn’t go around advertising it.
