Dozens of animals were seized when San Diego County sheriff’s deputies discovered a cock fighting ring near Fallbrook Tuesday.
Deputies were conducting a probation search on Rainbow Glen Road at 7 a.m. when they discovered the illegal cock fighting operation.
Forty-six gaming cocks were seized along with sharp metal tools that are attached to the birds to cause more harm during the fights.
Rolando Carbajal who was listed as the primary tenant of the property was taken into custody along with 39-year-old Blanca Campos who was wanted on an unrelated outstanding warrant.
