(TERRE HAUTE) - One Terre Haute man accused in an animal fighting ring heard his charges Monday.

George Piker faces 45 counts for his role in the ring.

Police arrested Piker earlier this month after finding nearly 100 roosters in his barn.

Investigators found some of the battle birds dead and others with injuries consistent with fighting.

Piker entered a not guilty plea to the charges, including possessing an animal for fighting purposes.
