52 cited in northwest Ohio cockfighting ring

DELTA, Ohio – Authorities in northwest Ohio say they’ve broken up a cockfighting ring.

Fulton County authorities said they cited 52 people and seized 72 live roosters near the village of Delta on Sunday. That’s west of Toledo.

Deputies who responded to a report of gunshots fired found people running away from a barn where the roosters were found. They also found $1,500 in cash.

The misdemeanor citations included animal-fighting or being a spectator. Deputies said the people at the barn were from Ohio, Michigan and Indiana.

The Humane Society of the United States says cockfighting is a centuries-old sport in which two or more specially bred birds are placed in an enclosed pit to fight as spectators wager.
