A large scale, three-part raid, “Operation Angry Birds”, yielded more than 70 arrests of cockfighters and involved hundreds of cops and Department of Homeland Security officers, saving thousands of birds. The raid will go down in history as the largest cockfighting bust ever.

An individual involved in the illegal and inhumane activity came forward with the information that lead to the massive takedown. Authorities reported that the roosters were fitted with razor-sharp spurs to tear each other to shreds and pumped with performance enhancing drugs as spectators watched, drinking alcohol and unaffected by the cruelty.

The action started in Queens on Saturday when undercover officers staked out the cockfighting event, watching customers pay to enter the basement of horrors. After the stakeout, the officers raided a Brooklyn pet store where the birds were allegedly being supplied from. Finally, a farm was busted in Plattekill where it is believed that the birds were raised and then sent to multiple states in the North East to fight.

Hopefully, this sends out the message that all animals matter and cruelty, even for “sport”, will not be tolerated.
