This massive criminal operation is owned and operated by Darlene Nancy Smiddy, 60 and Michael Dean Smiddy, 62, both from Pine Knot, KY (photos below).
SHARK investigators have filmed this location on multiple occasions over multiple years. And yet the Kentucky State Police (KSP) are impotent in dealing with these criminals operating right under their nose. A large felonious animal fighting venue that has been operating for years in the exact same location and yet the Kentucky State Police and McCreary County Sheriff Randy Waters do absolutely nothing.
In December of 2022, SHARK filmed yet another cockfight at this location, which included multiple children documented attending the fights. The Smiddys might want to read the Animal Fighting Spectator Prohibition Act, which makes it a federal felony to knowingly bring a child under the age of 16 to an animal fight. Each instance is punishable by up to three years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
