In what authorities are calling the second-biggest dog fighting bust in U.S. history, state and federal agents executed 13 search warrants in Georgia and Alabama on Friday. Some 367 dogs were rescued and 11 people taken into custody:
Along with the 367 pit bull terriers, agents seized guns, narcotics, drugs used to train and treat the dogs and other evidence of dog fighting, authorities said.
They also seized $500,000 in the operation, and Beck said the defendants would bet $5,000 to $200,000 on a single fight.
One yard alone had 114 chained dogs without water or food. Thank goodness there are people looking out for these animals and willing to put their lives on the lien to save them.
