Authorities were reportedly familiar with the property located in the Santa Clarita Valley in the northwestern part of Los Angeles County because it was also raided in 2007 when approximately 2,700 birds confiscated.
Cockfighting paraphernalia including mobile fighting pits and a shotgun were also found at the scene as were syringes and steroids, which are often used to make the birds bigger and stronger.
According to The Signal, other animals and approximately 50 guard dogs were also found on the property.
While the property owner has been identified, no arrests have been made as of yet.
“Cockfighting is a big business for criminals,” spcaLA President Madeline Bernstein said in a statement and call to action. “This is the part where I ask for yourhelp. spcaLA is not government funded. There is no “parent” or “umbrella” group that provides support. For 140 years, your spcaLA has prevented cruelty to animals through generous donations from people like you.”
