The Gadsden Police Department continues to investigate reports of dogfighting.
The department received a report last week regarding dogfighting near Springdale Court – however by the time officers arrived on the scene everyone was gone with the exception of a female pit bull which had been seriously injured.
The dog was taken to an Etowah County veterinarian however its wounds were too severe and as a result, was humanely put down.
Anyone aware of any suspected dogfighting is encouraged to contact local law enforcement to make a report of the activity and to report it to the Humane Society; the Humane Society of the United States offers $5,000 rewards for tips leading to a conviction in such cases.
The number is 1-877-TIP-HSUS – that’s 1-877-847-4878.
