Deputies say hundreds of roosters, along with illegal drugs, were found at a north Harris County property last week, and now charges are pending against two men.

The discovery was made August 23 as deputies were responding to a kidnapping call in the 14000 block of Sellers Road. They didn't find any evidence of a kidnapping, but they say they did find 377 roosters in cages, three kilos of cocaine, marijuana and more than $40,000 in cash.

According to investigators, the roosters were used for illegal cock-fighting. The roosters were confiscated and turned over to the SPCA.
