Cleveland Cockfighting Bust Nets 40 Men, 43 Cocks

The Cleveland Cockfight: not an alliterative sexual feat, sadly. On Saturday, police in Ohio’s Emerald City uncovered a cockfighting ring operating in a basement on West 30th street. They detained 40 members and found shelter for their 43 cocks or, as the delicate media would term them, “live roosters.”

Police said they were called at 4:20 p.m. about possible dog fighting in a house on West 30th Street at Hancock Avenue. Investigating officers heard noises from the basement, where they found the 40 men engaged in cockfighting, a “blood sport” between roosters that involves betting.
The homeowner faces felony charges of animal cruelty and gambling. Cleveland residents, wondering what has become of their city, will be wistful for the good old days.
