Authorities arrested two men Wednesday in an alleged cockfighting operation in rural western Johnson County.

Johnson County Sheriff's deputies confiscated more than 170 fighting roosters and large sums of cash while executing a search warrant at 38750 W. 151st St. The men have not been charged.

The sheriff's office said Lawrence Humane Society was among the agencies assisting the investigation.

Yep! The hen loving liberal chicken lovers of Lawrence will be all over this one. All the hen's in Lawrence and all the cocks are in Johnson County, now on death row. What do you do with 170 cocks?Have a BBQ!

I don't know what all the clucking is about. Everyone gets too flocking excited about this stuff.

I didn't know if Sherron Collins was involved with this too!! I know that's bad but he allegedly injured somebody in an earlier complication!

"suspected and alleged". Yeah .... it was probably just their fingers held in such a way to make it look real.

Wow...the comments on this thread are not at all what I expected them to be. Like, people are being funny. I like pleasant surprises.

Why can't you have chickens in town, but pigeons are okay? I see a house on E 15th across from the cemetary that has a bunch of pigeons. I don't know if they are pets or what they are for. They are always all over the yard and perched on the house. Kind of strange looking.

Do you Beavis and Butthead idiots even know what cock fighting is? Obviously not. It's brutal, it's bloody, and it's violent. Do any of you mouth breathers have kids? Would you want to send two of them into a ring and bet on which one could kill the other first?

'me no want to hurt chicken, me like chicken"Somebody hurt Geroge's feelings. Beavis and Buttheads, mouth breathers, ???? Please!Although I think any animals fighting for sport is wrong (except for those goats I saw on Anthony Bordeau?? raming each other) I don' think comparing cocks to my kids is much of a comparison.

According to the KC Star, these respected individuals were illegal immigrants. Why is this not mentioned in the story?

You missed the intended point. Cock fighting doesn't make any more sense than throwing your kids into a ring to do the exact same thing.They are both horribly stupid._______coolmarv (Anonymous) says: 'me no want to hurt chicken, me like chicken"Somebody hurt Geroge's feelings.
