Cockfighting or "Cok Kages" is Haiti's national passion. Many argue that this sport serves as a form of entertainment and distraction where many could release their frustration and aggression in a safe arena. The sport is legal in Haiti and less vicious since they don't attach blades to their feet. This event usually takes place on Sundays throughout Haiti.
