PHILADELPHIA, Pa. -

An animal welfare agency says its officers helped break up a cockfighting ring in Philadelphia.
 
The Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals says it seized 18 live roosters and one dead bird at a cockfight on Saturday.
 
The SPCA teamed up with city police after receiving a tip about the activity in the Kensington neighborhood.
 
According to the SPCA, dozens of participants and spectators scattered when police arrived, but one arrest was made.
 
The roosters were taken to the SPCA's shelter for evaluation. Animal welfare officers say they also recovered cockfighting paraphernalia.
 
The SPCA says cruelty charges are pending against the suspect, whose name was not released.
