Cockfighting Operation Shut Down

Last updated on Tuesday, January 1, 2008

(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.
