CMPD Investigating East Charlotte Dog Fighting Incident

From – October 11, 2011

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Charlotte-Mecklenburg police are investigating an incident involving dog fighting in east Charlotte.

According to a police report, CMPD officers responded to an apartment on Eastcrest Drive off of Central Avenue Sunday around 11 p.m.  While on scene, officers and animal control noticed three pit bulls with injuries that appeared to have been sustained during dog fighting. 

Those three pit bulls also had injuries from an instrument police are calling a “breakstick” that was used to separate the dogs during fights.

No one has been arrested yet, but police plan to take out warrants on those they think may be responsible for holding the dog fights.  The three dogs were taken by animal control for treatment.
