Over 200 rescued fighting roosters placed in forever homes

Officials at the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals say that more than 200 of the 432 birds rescued by police from an illegal Northhampton cockfighting ring in May have been placed in permanent, safe homes. 136 of the roosters, hens and chicks have been relocated in Springfield, Vt.


  1. Really, saving chicken and rehabilitating them, some Sweet Baby Rays and a grill is what I say.

  2. good way to feed our homeless veterans

  3. Even for chickens, Springfield is the top destination for those placed in witness protection. Let's make Springfield a little more fowl eh?


Please keep your comments polite and on-topic. No profanity
