    A man died after being hit in the groin by a fighting fowl in the southern Philippines, police said today.

    Elmer Mariano was helping prepare the gamecock for a fight in Zamboanga on Sunday when a blade strapped to its leg accidentally slipped out of the sheath and inflicted a major wound.

    Mariano died on the way to the hospital. It was not known what happened to the gamecock.

    Cockfighting is a popular and legal pastime in this country. The gamecocks wear razor-sharp blades or "spurs" on their legs, which they use in battles which sometimes end in death.
