In this Friday, July 6 2012 photo, a cockfight judge, left, taunts a gamecock with a fake stuffed rooster to get it riled before the start of a battle at Las Palmas, a government-sponsored cockfighting club in Bayamon, Puerto Rico. The island territory’s government is battling to keep the blood sport alive, as many matches go underground to avoid fees and admission charges levied by official clubs. Although long in place, those costs have since become overly burdensome for some as the island endures a fourth year of economic crisis.  (AP Photo/Ricardo Arduengo)
