Cockfighting Ring Busted in Kensington

18 live roosters are seized.

Animal control officials seized 18 live roosters from a Kensington house over the weekend, part of what officials say was a cockfighting enterprise: Officers arrived to find a “large-scale cockfight” in progress; the incident took place about 3 a.m. Saturday in the 2900 block of E Street.

“Cockfighting is a brutal crime and is still serious problem in our community,” said George Bengal of the PSPCA. “It’s a felony in Pennsylvania and we will hold those who harmed these birds responsible.” (Fox 29)
