MOULTRIE, Ga. (AP) -- Authorities say 32 people are facing charges in connection with what they describe as a cockfighting ring in south Georgia.

Colquitt and Lowndes County sheriff's departments, animal control officers and human society representatives showed up with a search warrant at a property on Georgia Highway 256 in Colquitt County on Saturday.

Colquitt County sheriff's chief investigator Shannon Hart says the 32 suspects are charged with being a party to cruelty to animals. Hart said the arrests are the result of an investigation that's been ongoing for about a month.

Names of the suspects were not immediately released.
