A follow up to a story from yesterday about two people arrested for allegedly being part of a cockfighting ring in Vigo and Sullivan counties.
Deputies say this may be connected to a larger multi-state ring.
Jeffrey McMahan of Sullivan and George Piker of Terre Haute have been arrested on felony possession of fighting animals and also paraphernalia used in the fighting of animals.
A total of 50 battle birds were taken by the Terre Haute Humane Society.
It’s up in the air at the moment what will happen to the roosters.
The Terre Haute Humane Society says they are waiting on word from the state veterinarian to decide what the next step is.
Some of the birds have a street value of $400.
