LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - It was banned back in August, but investigators believe cockfighting is still alive and well here in Southwest Louisiana. There's word Saturday afternoon that Louisiana State Police busted an alleged cockfighting ring off Willow Springs Road between Westlake and Sulphur.
7 News has confirmed the location where the bust took place was originally built for cockfighting. When State Police investigators arrived on the scene they found more than 200 people there along with birds believed to be used for cockfighting.
At this time, State Police are just saying this is an ongoing investigation -- no word yet on if anyone has been arrested, but 7 News did speak to Calcasieu Animal Control officials late this evening. Animal Control says they are involved in this investigation.
The law banning cockfights took effect August 15, 2008 and carries strong penalties including up to ten years in jail and $25,000 in fines.
