(AP) — More than 100 roosters have been recovered after police broke up a cockfighting ring in Central California.

KFSN-TV reports (http://abc30.tv/2q2tHpr ) the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office arrived recently at a Kerman barn during a fight that was attended by close to 100 people.

Inside was a pool-sized arena, countless cages and betting receipts from some of the people who attended the show. There were also 25 dead birds, 10 that were injured and a total of 114 that were still alive.

People scattered when police arrived. Police arrested one man on suspicion of felony cruelty to animals and two misdemeanors for having birds for the use of fighting.

Since the raid, the Central California SPCA has been treating the injured animals.
