Two men were arrested Wednesday for allegedly running a cockfighting ring near 24th and Cypress in east Kansas City.
The city's Animal Health and Public Safety Division, backed up by Kansas City police, executed a search warrant on two adjoining houses on Cypress.
"We found a large number of fowl. And when I say foul we had roosters, we had hens, and we had baby chicks," according to Special Investigator James Donovan.
The actual cockfighting, city officials say, was done at a different location.
