Cockfight Uncovered at Children's Party
A cockfighting ring in Dayton, USA has been discovered – using a children’s party as a front! Officers raided the Texas home and found a party in full swing complete with a picnic table and a waterslide for children. However, inside a small barn just yards from where the children were enjoying the party, the police discovered several dead and dying poultry and live birds in cages with steel blades attached to their beaks. 48 live chickens were recovered from the property. In the U.S. Penalties for orchestrating the cruel fights range from six months to two years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000.
