Mysterious rooster statue puzzles, worries Reynosa residents

Valley Central News

A rooster statute placed in tribute to a slain Gulf Cartel leader has both puzzled and worried Reynosa residents but is also drawing curious onlookers.

Nicknamed "El Gallo de Vista Hermosa" or "The Rooster of Vista Hermosa," the statue mysteriously appeared at the entrance of the Colonia Vista Hermosa at the beginning of the week.

It's not clear who placed the statue there but it's adorned with a wreath of flowers bearing the name of Samuel Flores-Borrego, a Gulf Cartel leader who went by the nickname “Metro 3” or “M3.”

Flores-Borrego was murdered on the highway to Monterrey back in September.

Media Reports

The rooster statue has made headlines in several national Mexican media outlets.

According to the Vanguardia newspaper, Flores-Borrego was rumored to live in the Vista Hermosa neighborhood.

The neighborhood is located on western edge of the city at the intersection of two major roads leading to Monterrey.

The Vanguardia newspaper reported that the site of the rooster is also the near the singer where Duranguense singer Valentin Elizalde was gunned down in Reynosa back in November 2006.

Elizalde went by the nickname “El Gallo” or the “The Rooster” but no suspects have ever been arrested for his death.

Vanguardia reported that the statue’s location is also the scene where wrestler Jorge “Imagen” Cantu and two others were killed during a chase with a military convoy back in June 2010.

Military officials reported that the three men were armed and have fired upon soldiers.

Twitter Sensation

Reynosa residents have been circulating photos of the rooster statue on the #reynosafollow hashtag of Twitter for the past several days.

Some Twitters even created the #GalloDeVistaHermosa hashtag to specifically talk about the statue.

Although Reynosa residents showed fear about the statue at the beginning of the week, it quickly dissolved.

One Twitter user said on Thursday that area residents were posing for pictures in the front of the statue.

The statue appears to have its own power source and lights to illuminate it at night.

One Twitter user wondered how it got connected and who’s paying for the electric bill.

Neither city nor state nor federal officials have made a statement or publicly taken action to remove the statue.

  16. It's amazing how this memorial display, complete with a "power source" for lighting, has remained in place for several weeks and the Gov't has done nothing to remove it! Also, the display is made of Bronze, which means heavy lifting equipment (small crane) would have been needed to place it there...plus the flood lights on the ground would have taken a few hours to hook-up yet nobody saw anything...lol

  20. Why is everyone making a big deal out of this? This guy was beloved by everyone and seems like those on top of the leader chain envied him. Does anyone actually know the truth why Tres was killed? I heard a rumor but it has not been mentioned on any of these blogs. not sure if its true.

    Have you seen a dog fight? I have, and I can tell you is the same shit it was the dumbest most pathetic thing ive ever seen a group of grown men get excited about.

    Only in Mexico would they honor their "great warriors"? Are you talking about the criminals? Because I can assure you none of us Mexicans not involved in drug trafficking honor this mother fucker.

    What about honoring the child molesting priest in U.S have read about that?

    1. R1 hadn't made videos since 2010. And i can assure you the guy in the video is his brother Romeo and not R1. I am from nueva ciudad guerrero and everyone there knows who R1 and his brother are. What I have heard was that M3 gave up and was behind the capture of R2, Tocayo, and Romeo. That's why R1 had M3 killed, and acused him a a trader. That's why M3 pants were down when they found him. now its rumored that R1 is in guadalajara. But no doubt is that the Metros now run most of CDG in tamaulipas.

  38. It's easy to mock the rooster statue... But it is just another part of a very worrisome trend of these gangster cartels developing a folklore...and forming a seemingly legitimate criminal class within society.

    They kill at will, write songs about it, make videos, control the media, frighten the authorities, put up banners & dump bodies where ever they please.

    There is a criminal culture developing amongst the mexican cartels that seems to be expanding on a daily basis.

    It will take over every thing in it's path unless something drastic is done.

  45. lol at meximelts saying white people beg for change. Look at any welfare line. Look at jails or better yet look at any sex offender site in the south west. It's 90% mexican. For every one white person who begs for change you have 100 Mexicans who collect welfare or in jail for some sex crime.

    1. @9:34 am That only shows the racist attitude of the american justice system. As for sex crimes is not our fault that american young ladies like mexicans more than they like americans. You should be grateful that illegal mexicans are marrying ugly white fat ladies and supporting the 5 or 6 hungry white little boys their drug addict white father couldn't support.

  47. Mexico should be left to itself.They neither ask for help,nor do they deserve it.I didn't know they were so racist against so-called "white people"?
    As with a lot of lazy and unremarkable people,they are basically jealous of the endeavor and work ethic of more financially well off people.I understand there is not good prospects for a young man in Mexico,but to blame other people for their own self inflicted woes,really is a bit pathetic.

  51. This is something for all Mexicans to be proud of. It is a strong symbol of the very masculine Mexican men who proudly display their machismo by engaging in chicken fights, dog fights, bull fights and best of all, drug traffic with it's murder, extortion and theft.

    I would like to be involved but I'm not man enough to kill women and children at random.

  52. R1 was not caught with Gilberto Balderas. That was his brother. R1 was always in Reynosa and would follow orders from Tres. What gets me is... what's the real reason why they killed M3? He was well respected by his peers.
    I find this hard to believe but rumor has it that he tried to switch sides and was killed for that reason. Que is la verdad?

  65. The CDG drama/infighting is like a Shakespearean tragedy, all the cartel inner workings are. The Gulf has been quiet for awhile, I keep thinking sooner or later we will have some insight, but it's been almost 5 months since Metro 3 died, and no one knows anything, besides the initial reports, and rumors of civil war. With all the captured members, you'd think we would get some clarity.
