Police in western Michigan's Oceana County raided a cockfighting ring over the weekend which resulted in more than a dozen arrests.

According to ABC12, the bodies of 10 roosters were found in a large pit during Saturday's raid in Hart Township, about 60 miles northwest of Grand Rapids. There were also 35 live roosters found in pens or fighting in the surrounding area.

There were like 30 people gambling or participating in one compacity or another but ended up fleeing into the woods after police arrived on the scene. The police were able to find six people who were hiding in the woods, thanks to a police tracking dog.

15 people were arrested and are in the county jail on felony charges of animal fighting.

What blows me away is the fact that cock-fighting rings actually still exist. This to me is the dumbest thing ever not to mention illegal. I don't understand the attraction to scum bag people like this who participate in this kind of crap whether it be cockfighting, dogfighting or whatever other kinds stupid fighting there is.

Cockfighting has been going on for over 6,000 years, so I guess it's safe to assume it's not going to stop anytime soon.
