Police Serve Search Warrant on Alleged Cock-Fighting Operation

Officials are in the process of seizing 127 gaming birds, according to a spokesman with the Washington County District Attorney's Office.

State police in Washington are in the process of serving a search warrant at a location in Daisytown where officials suspect a cock-fighting ring was operating.

Assistant District Attorney Joe Zupancic said Wednesday afternoon that officials also found an alleged breeding operation going on at the undisclosed location, as well.

"It's ending up being bigger than we thought it would be," he said.

Zupancic said that state police and District Attorney Gene Vittone would be releasing further information—and confirmed that 127 gaming birds were being seized by humane officials.

Aside from members of the state police and district attorney's office, the Humane Society of the United States and the Washington County Animal Response Team also responded to the scene.

No further details were immediately available.
