Rooster Round Up – Cockfighting – Nearly 300 live animals will avoid cruel treatment and ultimately death thanks to Grand Prairie Animal Services and Adoption Center and Grand Prairie Police Detectives, as well as our Response Team here at Animal Investigation and Response. A search warrant executed in the 1400 block of Corral Rd on Tuesday, April 27, 2021, led to the discovery of hundreds of animals including adult roosters, hens, and chicks suspected of being bred to fight. Detectives also discovered cash, numerous medications, supplements, syringes, and other implements used to alter roosters into fighting birds.  The street value of the animals and all contraband that was seized in association with this cockfighting operation is believed to be estimated at half-million-dollars in value. Our team seized 359 hens, chicks, roosters and unhatched eggs. Placement: 98%
