Remember the "Chicken Man"....He was the fellow who used to call the HOTLINE years ago. He also raised fighting cocks at his home near Calcium. Well, its always been illegal to stage animal fighting in NY, now the its a misdemeanor to even attend such an event.
Anyway, the Chicken Man passed some time ago and his family moved away. Cockfighting, or dog fighting, doesn't seem to be part of the culture in NNY, so I don't think there will be many of these arrests up here.
