28 Dogs rescued after police bust dog-fighting ring

Police say 26 people were arrested and 28 dogs were rescued when a major dog-fighting ring was busted in Apopka, Fla.

The raid happened Tuesday evening while a bloody dog-fight was in progress.

Police say they got an anonymous tip that the fights had started again after two months of officers keeping an eye on the house.

They say it was critical to find a fight in progress so they could bring the strongest charges possible against the people they arrested.

“I do not understand and will not understand who can get pleasure out of the cruelty of that,” said Apopka Police Sgt. Kim Walsh

Police say two children, ages 3 and 5, were also at the home watching the fights with their parents.

Orange County Animal Services is now sheltering the more than two dozen pit bulls that were rescued.
