COPY-Tucson Area Raids Target Dog Fighting Ring

From the KOLD News 13 Newsroom

Pima County Sheriff's investigators have raided at least four locations in the Tucson area that they say are part of a dog  fighting ring.

Deputies arrested at least two people so far.

A KOLD News 13 crew was on the scene at a westside home as authorities seized an estimated 90 animals.

The raids follow an 11-month investigation that started with a tip from the U.S. Humane Society.

Pima Animal care and the Humane Society of Southern Arizona are helping provide shelter for seized animals.

It appears the operation bred and trained dogs for the purpose of dogfighting.
