7 Arrested at Cockfight

Los Angeles: Los Angeles police officers interrupted a cockfight in Pacoima and arrested six adults and one juvenile on November 24, 2007.

The incident unfolded just before 10:30 A.M., after officers received a complaint of a cockfight in progress in the 11500 block of Sproule Avenue. When the officers got to the location, a group of men tried to flee by jumping over a ten-foot wall. After a brief chase, officers were able to detain seven suspects, including a juvenile.

The Animal Cruelty Task Force (ACTF) responded to the location and found five injured and three dead roosters. They also confiscated $2,300.00 from the suspects that were in custody.

It is a misdemeanor to attend a cockfight.

All seven suspects were charged with being a spectator at the scene of a cockfight.

The ACTF investigates human cruelty against animals and is made up of Los Angeles police officers and detectives, animal service officers from the Department of Animal Services and Deputy City Attorney’s from the LA City Attorney’s Office.

Reports of animal cruelty can be reported to the ACTF at 213-847-1417.
