It may have been a heavyweight fight, but one seldom seen around here. We have the latest information on a cockfight that took place near the Carroll-Ogle county line.
Saturday afternoon close to 3 p.m. hundreds of people gathered at a farm near Milledgeville to watch roosters fight.
The roosters involved in the fight are now being housed here at the Chana sale barn. 153 roosters were used in this fight. Some had razor blades on their feet that they used to defend other roosters. About 300 people crowded around the fighting ring to watch this cock fight.
Thirteen people have been charged with violation of the Humane Animal Care Act. This cockfight remains under investigation.
