An undercover cockfighting ring in Pococí was broken up on Monday. Officers said they confiscated eight hens, hundreds of metal spurs used for fighting and beer at the scene.
Fuerza Pública officials said they received numerous phone calls complaining about noise and overly drunken behavior coming from the area in Río Frío de Pococí, Limón. When they arrived they found the clandestine fighting ring and immediately informed authorities from the Servicio Nacional de Salud Animal.
Though officers made no arrests, they ordered for the operation to be completely demolished by the end of the month.
