PHILADELPHIA — Police serving a warrant at a Philadelphia home unexpectedly found more than three dozen roosters that authorities believe were used for cockfighting.

The 43 roosters were discovered around 6:30 a.m. Tuesday. Most of them were in several cages in an upstairs room, while other roosters were found in the basement of a neighboring home.

It wasn't clear Wednesday if anyone has been charged in connection with the ring.

Authorities say the warrant that was being served at the first home involved an unrelated matter, but further details about it were not disclosed. At least one person was arrested in connection with that matter, but their name was not released. — (AP)
