LYNN GROVE, Ky. (AP) - Police say 22 people are facing charges after state troopers responded to report of a cockfighting event in southwestern Kentucky.

A statement from Kentucky State Police says troopers were called to a building in Lynn Grove near the Tennessee border on Saturday night and found more than 30 dead gamecocks as well as 35 live roosters and hens. Police said 19 people from Kentucky and Tennessee were cited on a charge of second-degree animal cruelty. Three others at the scene were arrested.

The statement says the poultry at the scene was turned over to the Humane Society of Calloway County.
