Sheriff’s Deputies Uncover Major Cock Fighting Ring In Amador County

Fiddletown, CA — An Amador County farm owner is facing numerous charges after Sheriff´s deputies raided the farm and uncovered a major cock-fighting ring.

Authorities served a search warrant late Sunday morning at the farm of 53-year-old Richard Bohn of Fiddletown.

Police and animal control officers seized 58 roosters, six guns and thousands of dollars in cash. A total of 22 people were arrested for possession of fighting birds and cock-fighting weapons.
