LANSING MI - A TOTAL OF 53 PIT BULLS WERE SEIZED IN EATON AND INGHAM COUNTIES AFTER AN INVESTIGATION OF A PROFESSIONAL DOG FIGHTING RING

A total of 53 pit bulls were seized in a series of coordinated, cross-county police raids involving the investigation of an alleged professional dogfighting ring.
The dogs have been seized from various homes across Eaton and Ingham counties since the launch of the investigation in April, according to a Lansing State Journal report.
Warrants have been issued for two people allegedly involved in the operation, with charges expected to be filed against three more, police said.
Pending a court hearing, it is likely all 53 dogs will be euthanized, according to Ingham County Animal Control.
The Eaton County Special Response Team, along with Eaton County Animal Control executed a search warrant at about 3:10 p.m. Thursday, July 27, on a home along Thackin Drive where they took 10 dogs into protective custody, according to an Eaton County Sheriff's Office statement.
The search warrant was part of a joint-coordinated investigation with several other departments.
Along with seizing the 53 dogs, police seized blank dogfighting contracts, dog conditioning reports and breeding records from a suspect's home, the Lansing State Journal reports.

Pit bulls? Really? They did not seize Cairn Terriers?

They weren't pit bulls unless they did DNA tests on all of them. Pit bulls are nanny dogs, you know? How were these pit bull raised? They didn't want to fight, they were forced to. The dog fighting men should be put down, not the precious, let's give them a second chance, send them to rescues for fur mommies to love, throw a couple of tutus and therapy vests on them, rehabilitate them, and adopt all of the fighting pit bulls out!
