MOUNT VERNON, GA (WTOC) - Montgomery County authorities have raided what they call a major dog fighting ring.

Sheriff Clarence Sanders said they seized 30 to 35 dogs, which included puppies and grown dogs, they believe were used in the fighting.

He said they'd arrested one man in connection with the raid, which he said took place in nearby Higgston. In addition, he said, a second arrest is pending.

Sheriff Sanders said they'd received tips from the Georgia Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and the Atlanta Humane Society..." Link
