Police say dog fighting ring found in Miss.

BILOXI, Miss. (AP) — South Mississippi police say they have uncovered a dog fighting operation after responding to a complaint about barking dogs.

WLOX-TV says (http://bit.ly/uphNpO ) Biloxi police discovered 26 dogs in the woods behind two vacant mobile homes and it appears to be a place where dogs are raised for fighting. Several of the animals have bite injuries consistent with dog fighting. One investigator describes the conditions as “deplorable.”

The animals were to be taken to the Harrison County farm, since the humane society of South Mississippi cannot accept animals because of a minor fire Monday. Most of the dogs are pit bulls and are attached to heavy chains.
