Suspect sought for running cock fighting ring, gambling

WESTON, WI (WTAQ) - Police near Wausau are looking for a 35-year-old man charged with running a cock fighting ring and illegal gambling.

An arrest warrant was issued for Bee Her of Weston. He's charged with instigating animal fights, fatal animal mistreatment, marijuana possession, receiving a commercial gambling bet, and four counts of setting up illegal gambling machines.

Seven of the eight Marathon County charges are felonies. Authorities say they've been investigating Her since last February, when Everest Metro Police received a letter alleging criminal activity at Her's pool hall in Schofield.

Officers searched the business just over a month ago. They said they found gambling records and machines, plus thousands of dollars.

A search of Her's home was also conducted, where police said they found guns, $6,000, and 22 chickens -- many with major injuries. They were removed, but it was not immediately disclosed whether all or some of the chickens had to be euthanized.

Reports said Her was also suspected of running illegal gaming machines in Minnesota, other animal fighting, trafficking methamphetamines, and running a prostitution business.
