Metro police raid dog-fighting ring in Nashville

April 22nd, 2014 by The Tennessean in Local - Breaking News

Metro police have removed at least 38 dogs from two Bordeaux homes as part of an ongoing investigation into one of the biggest dog-fighting busts in Nashville's history.

The dogs, most of them pit bulls ranging from puppies to full-grown adults, were chained to trees in a wide expanse behind two Pewitt Road homes. Some of them were emaciated, scarred or marked with gaping, bloody wounds.

They were freed by officers with Metro police's specialized investigations unit and Metro Animal Care and Control staffers. Officers carried some of the shell-shocked animals out in their arms.
