Male roosters are held prior to the cock fighting competition in Cavite, Philippines on Dec. 2006. The competition is the main event on a weekday afternoon not far from the home of Teresita "Tita" and Demetrio Comodaz "Emmet". New found prosperity comes with a hefty price for many Filipino workers, as many of them get sucked into gambling and alcoholism from the loneliness acquired from years abroad. Often workers will get put in jail for holding illegal cock fights in the more conservative host countries, such as Saudi Arabia. Cock fighting is a common and legal sport in the Philippines and can even be seen as televised events.
