Deputies Bust Large Dog Fighting Ring On AL/MS State Line

Washington County Sheriff Richard Stringer says deputies and officers from multiple agencies broke up what is believed to be a large dog fighting ring overnight.

The sheriff says 23 people were arrested near an abandoned home on Highway 45 at the state line between Alabama and Mississippi. The home was used like a dog fighting ring.

26 of the people who were arrested, the sheriff says under state law even spectators at dog fights can be charged with a felony.

Stringer says officials from the Alabama Conservation Department and their K-9 Unit along with State Line police, Wayne County deputies and others helped in this investigation.

He says 41 cars had to be towed from the site on Highway 45 Saturday night.

Three of the four dogs seized are seen here and are in the care of a WCSO deputy.
