I was reading the VIC about a recent shooting on STX. The article was referencing the "cockpit". At times I saw it in caps and others in lower case. I originally thought that it was the name of a bar or nightclub............

So, cockfighting is legal in the VI?
What about dog fighting?

Like a lot of things in the VI, not legal but they exist due to a lack of will to enforce the law.

technically both are illegal.

Federal law still applies here (or is suppose to).

Only federal laws that are applicable to the Territories. The cockfighting law isn't.
