Old Bridge man charged with training and selling fight birds

The state Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has charged Orphilio Chaviano of Old Bridge with 114 counts of animal cruelty for allegedly possessing, training and selling fight birds.  The NJSPCA says that they believe Chaviano was getting the birds from outside the United States and was shipping them out of the country. 

Old Bridge is a middle-class town and you don’t see this type of activity there.  These crimes typically happen in either urban areas or rural areas such as south-west NJ.
