Riverside County officials have euthanized 134 roosters found on a property near the small desert town of Oasis during an investigation into a suspected cockfighting ring, authorities said Saturday. Deputies from the Riverside County Sheriff's Department discovered the roosters, several boxes of blades, a cockfighting ring and a trophy after responding to a report of animal cruelty at the property on Thursday, said Cpl. Joshua Morales, a department spokesman. The roosters had to be euthanized because they were raised to fight and are too aggressive to enter a normal population, Morales said.
