Massive Rooster-Fighting Ring In Michigan Has Been Busted
There's a couple things the headline alone on this one got me thinking. First off, where do you even find a rooster to train to become a fighter? Are there rooster fighting gyms? Who's the Apollo Creed of roosters? Either way it's all wrong and I'm glad this got broken up.
15 people have been arrested and 35 live roosters were found after police broke up an illegal cock-fighting ring in western Michigan's Oceana County in Hart Township. State police said that the bodies of 10 roosters also were found in a large pit during Saturday's raid as well.
The live roosters were said to have been in pens or were fighting in the surrounding wooded area according to WDIV Detroit. Police say there were at least 30 people participating in the illegal fighting and gambling operation when they were busted but fled into the woods. A police tracking dog was able to find six people who were trying to hide.
