Dog FightingFederal agents have seized 63 dogs after discovering blood-stained carpet at the site of a suspected dog fighting pit in rural Georgia.

Agents searched the scene and found 55 pit bull dogs staked to the ground with heavy chains and with no access to food.

They also found four “grave areas” and the buried bodies of five dogs.

Dodge County jail records show that six Georgia men and one South Carolina man are facing dog fighting-related charges. The records do not list attorneys for them.
