(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.

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.
