LA CROSSE, Wis. -

Charges are filed against the La Crosse Co. man accused of running a cockfighting ring.

Investigators found a cockfighting pen and more than three dozen hens and roosters on 54 year old Nhia Vang's property in the Town of Holland.

The criminal complaint filed Tuesday says authorities got a tip to investigate Vang and another man's property.

A humane officer identified several changes to the birds indicating they were being used for cockfighting.

Vang will be back in court next week. His attorney is considering challenging the sufficiency of the complaint.
