PHOENIX (AP) - A 52-year-old man was arrested after officers found 71 roosters at a west Phoenix residence where evidence of cockfighting was found.

A court document said property owner Silvano Tena was arrested Saturday on suspicion of 71 counts of animal cruelty.

According to the document, at least some of the roosters were injured.
