On April 12, 2010, an Adams County Animal Control Officer was chasing a stray dog in the area of 84th Avenue and Rosemary Street. When the dog ran into a lot in the area the Animal Control Officer looked into the fenced area for the dog. She saw roosters with their combs and waddles groomed for fighting.

On April 27, 2010, the Adams County Sheriff’s Office was notified of the roosters. A Search Warrant was obtained for the residence and property located in the 8400 block of Rosemary Street.

On April 30, 2010, the Adams County Sheriff’s Office, Adams County Animal Control, Building Inspectors, Zoning, Tri-County Health, and the State Veterinarian went to the Rosemary location to execute the Search Warrant and to investigate various issues with the property.

Over one-hundred and fifty-nine roosters, hens, and chicks that are bred for fighting purposes, were located on the property. Some of the birds were injured and some were dead at the time the deputies arrived. The remaining birds were euthanized under the direct supervision of the State Veterinarian.

No arrests have been made at this time and the case is under investigation.
