A Rochester couple has been arrested on felony animal cruelty charges for staging a cock-fighting event yesterday.
The Humane Society-Lollypop Farm says its law enforcement officers arrested Martin Diaz and Maria Ginel of Alice Street. They're accused of hosting an animal fighting event involving live roosters.
Both are being held in the Monroe County Jail pending a court hearing.
Lollypop Farm officials say cockfighting is more prevalent in the area than people realize.
