The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office made six arrests after responding to a June 24 cruelty to animals call in Maysville.
Deputies responded to an address on Hickory Way and witnessed several persons standing around a homemade fence with chicken coops all around the property.
Several persons fled but deputies were able to detain six. Further investigation revealed several dead roosters, spurs and other items related to “chicken fighting.”
Among those arrested were David Castro, 31, Valentin Castro, 42, Ramiro Delgado, 42, Feliciano Gaona, 37, Aracely Olea, 38, and Tomas Rodrigues, 31. They were charged with obstruction and cruelty to animals, and other charges are also pending.
