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.

Tena did not immediately respond Monday to a message asking for comment.
