Two Charged With Cockfighting

Deputies have arrested two people for a century's old blood sport they say was in progress at a home in the east.

24-year old Luis Morales and 54-year-old Nicolas Perez of Stantonsburg in Greene County were charged with cockfighting. Morales faces other charges, including restraining a dog in a cruel manner.

Morales has bonded out, posting a $2,500 bond, while Perez is still behind bars.

Greene County Animal Control is handling the investigation.
