Autauga County Dog Fighting Ring Busted


By Alabama News Network

Autauga County Sheriff's officials have seized a dozen dogs after uncovering a dog fighting ring near Autaugaville.

Autauga County Chief Deputy Joe Sedinger tells Alabama News Network  they received a tip about some dogs being tied up in a wooded area near North Pickett Street.

Sedinger says when they arrived they found two dogs dead and another dozen tied up in terrible condition. Officials say they also found what they call a makeshift dogfighting ring sectioned off nearby, along with a stolen four-wheeler at the scene.
No arrests have been made at this time, but the case is still under investigation.

This is just terrible. I hope they get what they deserve. I live in Autaugaville and two of my pups were stolen a few years ago. I hate to think this was their fate.

Lots of dogs have been stolen and these dogs that you found could be long to someone looking for their dog.could someone post on Facebook the descriptions of the dogs including the dead ones so some people can stop looking for their pet G
