Shelters See Effects Of Dogfighting

      With the high-profile arrest of NFL player Michael Vick on dogfighting charges, workers at the Humane Society of Northeast Texas in Longview say this is a problem they see all too often. Right now, they have 4 pit bulls suspected of being used for fighting. Their wounds show the signs of battle and the Humane Society says it makes these animals vulnerable and unpredictable around humans and other animals.  

   At the Humane Society of Smith County, workers are caring for 3 dogs used in fights.

    They say every month, more and more animals are brought in by animal control that show signs of this type of abuse.
