Authorities responded to a call placed at about 11 a.m. regarding people carrying roosters in and out of an empty lot at 744 Forest View Ave., said Lt. Jaime Baltazar of the sheriff’s Industry Station. When deputies did a helicopter flyover, they saw a crowd of spectators gathered in an arena set up inside the lot. Inside, they arrested several spectators and found about 400 dead and alive roosters, as well cages and various items used for cockfighting. Animal control took the animals. It is unclear who organized the cockfight and investigations are ongoing, Baltazar said.
