(LIGONIER) - Police have shutdown a suspected cockfighting operation in Noble County.
34 year-old Eleazar Sandoval is under arrest, facing numerous charges including promoting animal fighting.
Police say they found blood, feathers and animal remains in two arena-style areas in barns.
Nearly 200 birds have been removed from the farm--mostly roosters.
This is the second suspected cockfighting bust in the area made in 2007.
