Roosters Seized In Raid

Tennessee authorities seize 150 roosters from a rural property and issue more than 100 citations.

This weekend, authorities seized approximately 150 roosters from a rural property in Ducktown, Tenn., and police issued citations to more than 100 individuals for various misdemeanors, including gambling and cruelty to animals. Many of the people issued citations traveled from Georgia and North Carolina—states where cockfighting is a felony—and brought roosters across state lines to engage in the cockfighting event. The investigation that led to the raid was initiated by The Humane Society of the United States in conjunction with agents from the United States Department of Agriculture and the IRS’ Criminal Investigative Division.
