Afghan men watch a cockfighting match in Kabul, Afghanistan, Friday, Dec. 13, 2013. Though the fights are not to the death, the roosters are often bloodied and sometimes blinded before a winner is decided. For generations, roosters have been specially bred for their fighting capabilities. Forbidden during the Taliban regime, cockfighting and gambling on the fights have resumed.
