FORT WORTH (AP) - Police say more than a dozen people have been cited during an alleged cockfight in a North Texas neighborhood.

Fort Worth police early Sunday shut down a rooster fight in the back yard of a residence.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports police confiscated razors, syringes and steroids, which authorities have described as fighting tools.

Two roosters were found dead. Animal control officers seized several roosters from kennels.

The homeowner has been arrested on a charge of cruelty to animals. Police say 13 spectators received citations.

Gov. Rick Perry in June signed a bill that strengthens Texas laws again cockfighting, including making it illegal to possess birds meant for cockfighting and to attend a cockfight.
