Activists have called on authorities to intervene after photos appeared on social media of men holding roosters after cockfights, reports said on Tuesday.

The animal rights activists and conservationists were irked after the photos were circulated on social media. They showed men posing holding roosters with comments such as it was a good fight.

Experts told that offenders, if sentenced, could face up to one year in prison and/or fines.

In March 2017 customs found two roosters trained for cockfights in the car of a Greek Cypriot man who had crossed from the north. The man claimed the roosters belonged to a Turkish Cypriot friend of his who had forgotten them in his car.

The animals were delivered to the state veterinary services.
