In South Carolina The Chester County Sheriff’s Department have just busted up one of the largest dog fighting rings in state history. Thanks to the efforts of locals, arrests and charges were made, and dogs were seized.
Sheriff’s Deputies and the local Humane Society raided a home after investigations led to an address on Circle Drive. Three people were arrested in connection with the dog fighting. Authorities also took four dogs off of the property as well, two of which with fresh wounds.
Chester County Sheriff Alex Underwood said, “To go out and fight animals, it’s just inhumane.”
Underwood stated that the investigation revealed that between 300 and 400 people gathered in the woods near the home that was raided. A top prize between $80,000 and $100,000 was on offer. The single biggest money value in state history.
“Organizers, being that they set up the operation to come and fight at this location, but they also owned pit bulls that were going to fight,” said Sheriff Underwood.
Well done to The Chester County Sheriff’s Department!
