De QUEEN, Ark. (AP) — A group of inmates is tending up to 200 roosters at an Arkansas sheriff’s office pending their use as evidence against 137 people arrested at a cockfight.

Sheriff Robert Gentry said the birds would be held until a court decides what to do with them.

The Texarkana Gazette reports several agencies raided a cockfight near De Queen March 17, tracking down an operation that moved every weekend. The sheriff said 34 people face felony counts of unlawful animal fighting and 86 face misdemeanors. Others arrested were spectators.
