More than 50 roosters were taken by police from a barn in southern VigoCounty after police arrested two men for alleged animal fighting.
George Piker of VigoCounty, and Jeffrey McMahan of SullivanCounty, are both facing multiple felony counts of possessing animals for fighting purposes.
Now, what to do with the birds?
The Terre Haute Humane Society has been taking care of animals housing them in separate cages and feeding them a mixture of grains and fruit. They say it's been an adjustment learning how to take care of the birds, but they are working to rehabilitate them and the birds that were in bad shape when they arrived are getting better. A judge will decide what eventually is done with the animals.
