SAN DIEGO (AP) — San Diego County authorities are concerned that some residents may be claiming ties to 4H or Future Farmers of America to get around limits on how many roosters can be on a property.

The 4H and Future Farmers were exempted from an anti-cockfighting ordinance that allows just one rooster on properties less than a half-acre and up to 20 on parcels of five acres or more in unincorporated areas.

But City News Service says the county Board of Supervisors on Tuesday voted to have staff meet with the organizations to discuss ways to determine the legitimacy of exemptions, such as proof of membership or documentation of projects.

Supervisor Dianne Jacob says it appears some people claim ties to 4H or Future Farmers as a cover to raise roosters for cockfighting.
