Two Men Arrested in Seattle Dog Fighting Operation
An underground dog fighting ring was uncovered and two Seattle men are now facing multiple charges. Reports say that the investigation started with a report of dogs barking in a back yard. When authorities checked the dogs out, they saw one had scars on its face from fighting.
The Seattle PD's Special Task Force found a website where the owner describes breeding famous fighting dogs and offered them for sale online. They set up a sting where officers would try to buy a dog from the owner. During the meeting he showed videos and pictures of the dogs fighting to try and convince the cops to buy.
The male was arrested and the police served search warrants at the house and recovered 5 dogs, guns,dog fighting equipment, and $26,000.00 in cash. He was also already wanted on two different warrants from previous cases in Seattle.
