Yakima County Sheriff’s Office deputies were sent to the 300 block of E. Centennial Dr regarding an animal fight with 1000 spectators late Saturday night, KIMA-tv reported. 

KIMA-tv says that the deputies found the spectators attending a series of chicken fights held in a shop at an orchard and many people started to run out of the doors and windows after the deputies arrived.

Eight firearms were recovered as well as cash and tools used for outfitting the chickens for battle.

KIMA-tv also reports that the ranch foreman was taken into custody by the deputies and booked into the Yakima County Jail along with several other suspects detained for attending the fights.
