It was déjà vu for Burleson County authorities who busted up a cock-fighting ring off County Road 255. They say the illegal battles were being held at the exact same location they raided a few years ago.
Around a dozen citations for illegal gambling were handed out after the August 31 surprise visit. Burleson County Sheriff Dale Stroud said some of the participants fled into the woods leaving their vehicles behind. But they were ticketed after showing up at the Sheriff's Office to retrieve their cars that deputies had towed.
