Officials with the U.S. Humane Society, state police and investigators from a district attorney's office have raided a southwestern Pennsylvania farm where they suspect roosters used for illegal cockfights were being bred and trained.
Nobody has been charged in Wednesday's raid in West Pike Run Township, about 20 miles south of Pittsburgh. But Washington County District Attorney Eugene Vittone says that could change as the investigation continues.
Authorities seized 92 of 127 roosters found at the farm, along with other paraphernalia - including blades that could be attached to the birds' talons for fighting - they believe is related to cockfighting.
Vittone says investigators don't have evidence that cockfights were held on the farm. Rather, they believe the farm was supplying the birds for cockfighting derbies in states where the penalties are less severe.
