23 Dogs Saved From Alleged Fighting Ring

Authorities executed a search warrant on a sprawling property with several residences in Huntersville, North Carolina, Tuesday. There, police, animal control and animal rescuers found 23 Pit Bulls — including seven puppies — and equipment commonly used with dog fighting. The investigation came after the Huntersville Police got a tip about several dogs on the property “showing signs of bite marks and other injuries associated with dog fighting.” No charges have been filed yet in the investigation, which is ongoing. “Everybody that lives on the property, and may frequent the property, is subject to investigation,” said Lt. Andrew Dempski. The dogs are now being treated and cared for by the ASPCA in an undisclosed location. — Read it at the Washington Post
