GUNTER, TX--After a court hearing Monday, the SPCA of Texas officially has custody of the roosters from the illegal cockfighting incident in Gunter earlier in May.  

55 roosters and two dogs were recovered from the incident.

SPCA of Texas will now hold the animals at an undisclosed location for 10 days.

During that time, the former owners have the right to pay nearly $28,000 to appeal the decision. 

In late April, national news source ESPN uncovered the illegal activity. At the time, they notified the Gunter Police department and other local authorities.
