Ariz. - An illegal cockfighting ring was busted in the west valley and Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is not taking this animal cruelty lightly.
The fights were held in Tonopah, near 385th Avenue and Southern over the weekend. Nearly 70 people were arrested, including 20 suspected illegal aliens.
The two property owners, Apolinar Dominguez and Sara Lomas, are facing several felony charges. MCSO says both suspects are illegal immigrants.

Here these gents only wanted to come to the US for a better life for themselves and their familys and they got drafted into running a cockfighting ring.
At least they were able to spend quality with their children.
The roosters would have blades tied to their feet so they could mortally wound the other rooster during a fight. More than 50 roosters had to be euthanized.
Some of the people in attendance at the cockfight even had their children with them.
The Sheriff's office also says guns, drugs, and $25,000 in cash were found at the property.
Apart from the razor blades attached to their feet, there is nothing abnormal about roosters fighting.
