    Lorain OH - need help finding a home for 200+ chickens - huge cock fighting ring

    I was contacted by Rich Resendez Capt. of Lorain County Sheriff Dept. this
    morning regarding a huge Cock / chicken fighting ring that was busted last
    night in Lorain OH. He said they found cages where they were placed to fight
    each other. They found syringes where the chickens were injected with drugs to
    make them fight better! Some of the chickens have had their eyes pecked
    out. Some may need to be euth. but others are ok.
    I KNOW I AM SENDING THIS OUT TO MY DOG CONTACTS BUT I AM AT A LOSS !!
    PLEASE CROSS POST THIS OUT AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS.
    Call me on my cell 440-897-2662.

    I just can't believe that people can do that to a helpless animal. They should be pecked to death by chickens!!

    You need to contact this organization fast....

    They specialize in not only the care of the fowl, but also in the education of those involved as to proper interim care. So many times a ring is "busted" for cockfighting that kills the fowl, only to have the "rescuers" euthanize/kill the fowl as well....kinda ironic...
