SPCA Law Enforcement officers raided a suspected cockfighting operation on the 4000 block of North Fairhill Street in Hunting Park Thursday afternoon after undergoing a massive drug sweep across the city. Officials rescued 47 dressed fighting roosters and more than 50 hens and chicks. Officials also found a fighting ring and other fighting paraphernalia. Philadelphia Police also found illegal weapons and narcotics on the premises.
“Total narcotics confiscated including cocaine, crack, heroin, marijuana, PCP, pills, oxycotin, $198,000 worth,” said Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Cynthia Dorsey. “I feel that a lot of people in the neighborhoods are going to sleep safer and feel better as a result of this.”
