DELTA, Ohio (AP) — Authorities in northwest Ohio say they’ve broken up a cockfighting ring.
Fulton County authorities said they cited 52 people and seized 72 live roosters near the village of Delta on Sunday. That’s west of Toledo.
Deputies who responded to a report of gunshots fired found people running away from a barn where the roosters were found. They also found $1,500 in cash.
The misdemeanor citations included animal-fighting or being a spectator. Deputies said the people at the barn were from Ohio, Michigan and Indiana.
The Humane Society of the United States says cockfighting is a centuries-old sport in which two or more specially bred birds are placed in an enclosed pit to fight as spectators wager.

Ever expect to see a turkey in Northwest Ohio? How about a bobcat? Or even an otter?
All of these species — and more — are making a comeback in the region.
“Actually, there’s quite a few and the list is pretty extensive,” said John Windau, wildlife communication specialist with the Ohio Division of Natural Resources.
He said that over the past 80 to 100 years there has been a great improvement in a variety of habitats across the state, “and so our populations for these species are recovering.”
Among them, the iconic bald eagle, which Windau said has greatly rebounded in Northwest Ohio “to the point where it’s no longer listed as a species” that’s threatened.

PORT CLINTON, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio Air National Guardsman has been recognized for saving a tourist who fell into the water and was nearly sucked into the propulsion turbines beneath a ferry.
Air National Guard Technical Sgt. Daryl Walters was given the Ohio Distinguished Service Medal on Sunday at Camp Perry near Port Clinton.
Walters, with 15 years of service in the Ohio Air National Guard, was working a job with the Jet Express ferry on Sept. 2, 2013, when the intoxicated woman fell between the ferry and the dock.
The woman fell near the ferry’s propulsion turbines and began screaming for help. Walters yelled for the ship’s captain to cut the engines as he dived in to help. He and some others were able to get the woman safely out of the water.

It’s an addiction that doesn’t discriminate among race, age or socioeconomic level. It can spread its fingers into a variety of crimes.
And like the rest of the United States, Wood County is not immune.
Nationwide, the country is seeing a resurgence in heroin, a drug that found an eager audience in the 1990s but had largely faded away in the years since.
Now, it’s back in a big way.
Across the country, heroin use has been climbing steadily since 2007 among persons 12 or older, according to a government study.
The drug is processed from morphine, which itself comes from poppy plants. It can be snorted, smoked or injected, depending on the kind of heroin and its relative purity.
Bowling Green police saw a dramatic spike in heroin issues last year.
