Fighting roosters may be euthanized

NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - Sheriff Thomas Kerss drew up an order to sell or dispose of fighting roosters. It will be presented to a justice of the peace. The birds were confiscated over the weekend. Authorities were serving a warrant at property located on the Woden Road when they came upon the cockfight. Sheriff Kerss is suggesting that they be humanely euthanized since they were used for fighting and were cruelly treated. Seventeen people were arrested for cruelty to animals. More arrests and charges may occur.
