Blood Betting is a short film on the cruel and gory cock fights. This was filmed in rural Odisha in India on the outskirts of a protected forest.
Cockfights is being done in many states of India. This cruel sport is banned. However, people tie curved knives to one leg of the cock and make them fight. A lot of betting is done on this. Betting in all sports as well as non-sports activities is illegal in India. So the entire activity around cock-fights are illegal under multiple laws in India. However, people continue to indulge in cockfights and the police often turn a blind eye to this.
