Local law officials have arrested 26 people from across the country Sunday morning in Monroe County, MI to end the reign of a suspected dog fighting ring.

The central location of the dog fighting case was on the 500 block of Ida-Maybe Road in Raisinville Township, MI. Authorities found various drugs, handguns and $40,000 in cash. The dog fighting championships were held in the garage of the the two-story home.
Police also found five fighting dogs that were injured from a recent championship match. Animal control wants to know what happened to the injured dogs, where they were taken and where they were treated.

John Dinon of the Toledo Area Humane Society commented that “This is a national phenomenon where there are cells around the country and they communicate with each other about these animals and about these fights.”

The 26 suspects are currently in the Monroe County jail and are facing charges of dog fighting. If convicted, they may face up to four years in prison. Is this punishment severe enough?

Thankfully, Michigan has tougher laws against dog fighting than Ohio. Hopefully this will send a strong message to other dog fighting rings that this type of animal abuse must stop.

Monroe County Prosecutor Paul Nichols said this is by far, the biggest dog fighting case he has encountered. I want to hear from you! Feel free to comment on this dog fighting case. Is justice served or should there be harsher punishments?
