— Wilson police seized 35 roosters believed to be fighting cocks from a home on State School Road Monday.

In a search of the home, officers found evidence of roosters being prepared to fight, videos of fights and more than 100 chickens, including hens and younger roosters.

Police said the homeowner was cooperative in the search and does not face charges. Police are still trying to locate the animals' owner, whose name has not been released.

    They should check out the house on 96 in Oxford.......There are over 100 fighting roosters in the yard....chained to the pens they are in......what's up with that?.....

    Uh, maybe because the homeowner rents the place out and doesn't live there?

    ""officers found evidence of roosters being prepared to fight, videos of fights and more than 100 chickens" and the homeowner doesn't face charges? Give me a break."

    AMEN!!!

    Who do they think they're kidding. It's not like you can hide 100 roosters. Heck! They're so noisy, we can't even hide the one (1) we have.

    Praying for the beasties.

    God bless.

    We have this problem in Benson around Mule Days. But they usually sober up and ride their horses out of town after the weekends over.

    WOW! The Golo thought police must have their hands full on this article. There's a lot of testosterone around Wilson these days.

    GOLO - if a word appears in a story it should not be omitted from comments or censored. Your automatic censor needs to be adjusted accordingly.
