After a bizarre investigation, a man was recently arrested for multiple criminal charges. The Wisconsin authorities suspect the 37-year-old of breeding roosters for cockfighting. However, their search lacked the most common indicators of breeding for fighting. He also faces drug charges after several pounds of marijuana was allegedly found on his property.
The Wisconsin authorities say they launched a four-month investigation after receiving anonymous tips about possible cockfighting, but it is unclear exactly what led the police to suspect this specific man. The investigators suspect that the man was breeding roosters for cockfighting. During the search of his property, 61 roosters were seized. However, there was reportedly a lack of the most common evidence that would indicate the man was breeding the animals to fight. However, the police did claim to find materials "typically" used for such a purpose.
