UPC president Karen Davis contributed to this article which notes that the hens seized in this cockfighting raid (sadly, the roosters were immediately euthanized) were being held at the Atlantic County SPCA in Somers Point, NJ. The good news is that all of these hens and their chicks have been placed in good homes, according to Atlantic County SPCA president Nancy Beall in a phone call today with UPC.

New Jersey statutes prohibit “the fighting or baiting of a living animal or creature,” and a violation can result in a fine of between $3,000 and $5,000.
