Dog Fighting Raids In Montgomery, Georgia

By Dena Stapleton for the Savannah Pets Examiner

No one county is immune to the fact that dog fighting may be going on there. It is becoming a harder practice for more and more people as more citizens are becoming fed up with the dog fighting practices and actually starting to call in to authorities on what they see and hear. That was the case in Montgomery County, GA. Kenneth Jordan of Higgston is facing multiple charges of animal cruelty due to what investigator found at his home.

When the authorities got there all they saw was pine trees, but when they really started to look they found dogs, lots of dogs. They found twenty-two pit bulls, including a mother with her nine puppies. One of the puppies was not doing well and was close to dying. The dogs had no or little water or food which left them very dehydrated and starved. Others displayed scars that showed these dogs were used in fighting. The dogs were also chained by 40 pound logging chains, not a typical behavior for a pet dog. Mr. Jordan claims he loves his dogs and would never fight them but the surroundings told a different story. The authorities also uncovered an area that appeared to be about a dozen dog graves.

The sheriff had suspected this was going on in his county but was shocked that only a few hours after this initial seize he had received another tip of a possible dog fighting operation less than a half-mile away. Once they got there they found eighteen more dogs. They cannot find the owner at the second residence and are still looking for him. There is a toll free hotline for the Montgomery County area where people can call in if they suspect a dog fighting operation to be going on. The number is (877) 215-2250.

How can these people justify themselves as dog lovers!! Perhaps being chained up with 40lb logging chains,and neglected without adequate food,water,and made to fight for their lives would give them an insight to what they do to their dogs. If that doesn't work lock them up for life!!!!
