MCHA assisted the Indiana Gaming Commission and ASPCA in a raid and seizure of animals from the property of alleged cockfighter, twenty-six-year-old Jeffrey Russell Pierce.
More than 70 birds were rescued along with five pigs, a snake, six dogs and gerbils. The MCHA was able to find placement for all the animals who will now have a much brighter future free of neglect and abuse.
