After rapper Young Calicoe showed off what he said were fighting dogs and roosters being kept at a Detroit home, a search warrant was executed and the animals were seized.
Police removed animals from the west-side home after the search Wednesday, a Detroit Police spokeswoman told The Detroit News.
In the video, the rapper wanders the grounds of the home, on the 12200 block of West Outer Drive, pointing to pit bulls in kennels and one chained next to a doghouse, and several roosters, of which he says, “We fight them, too. That’s a grand champ right there.”
The animals from the home will be taken to the Michigan Humane Society, Detroit Police Sgt. Eren Stephens said. Police are also investigating whether the allegations are part of a larger dogfighting or cockfighting ring and are questioning several people, Stephens said.
Michigan Humane Society spokesman Kevin Hatman said all the animals will be treated by veterinarians. “We’re just happy right now that the animals are going to be receiving high-quality care,” he said.
In the video, Young Calicoe calls the dogs “champions in the making,” and says “I hope we don’t get indicted for that — that Michael Vick-type shit.”
