Justice for Roosters Allegedly Rescued From Cock Fighting Ring

Cock_Fight_1[1]

Target: New Britain Chief of Police, James Wardwell

Goal: Ensure group of men arrested for an alleged cock fighting ring are thoroughly investigated.

Ten adults and one teenager were recently arrested for alleged cock fighting and drug possession. Approximately 26 roosters and two hens were rescued and transported to a farm facility. Police also reportedly found a fighting ring, with what appears to be blood residue, on the premises. In addition there was allegedly $7,000 and more than 80 bags of heroin. Police suspect the birds were imported from Puerto Rico, and may also be carriers of bird flu.

Nine of these men were reportedly released on bond with a court date set for February 18th. It is not uncommon for animal fights to land a gambling charge, in addition to animal cruelty and drug possession charges.

An officer commented that cock fighting is not something typical for the area, and stated that it is definitely a “cultural difference.” This statement can rouse concerns that these men may be pardoned, or charged less extensively for the animal cruelty due to these “cultural differences.” Support this investigation of these men to the fullest extent of the law for allegedly readily partaking of such an abhorrent practice.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Chief Wardwell,

Ten men were recently arrested for alleged cock fighting and suspicion of running a fighting ring. They were also reportedly in possession of excessive amounts of heroin and endorsed the cock fight with a minor present. An officer was quoted in the news to have expressed consideration that cock fighting is a cultural difference.

Regardless of the reasons why these men were allegedly participating in this cruelty, they need to be held accountable for it, not only for gambling on animal lives, attributing to the delinquency of a minor, and possessing drugs, but also the full charge of animal cruelty. They do not need nor deserve leniency for their alleged actions.

Please, ensure that these monstrous individuals are investigated for their alleged crimes.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
