FANNIN COUNTY, TX -- Seven men have pleaded guilty cockfighting charges in Fannin County.

Back in February Fannin County authorities broke up a cockfighting ring just south of Honey Grove. Seven men, all from various Texas cities outside of our area, are each ordered to pay a $500 fine.

Fannin County District Attorney Richard Glaser says they believe the cockfighting ring moved from the Denton area to Fannin County, in hopes that the activity would be over looked. Glaser says they take cockfighting seriously and will continue to prosecute those who participate in it.
