Nashville Police Seize 38 Dogs in Massive Dog-Fighting Bust

dogfightingbustNashville’s Metro Police have seized 38 dogs, mostly pit bulls ranging in age from puppy to adulthood, from a massive dog-fighting ring that sprawled behind two Pewitt Road homes.

Police discovered evidence to the dog-fighting operation during an investigation into heroin and cocaine trafficking at the same properties. While investigating the homes of Michael A. Davis, 34, and his neighbor, James Jones, 35, police found treadmills, syringes, a breeding stand, hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash, and exercise logs documenting the dogs, along with multiple dogs tethered to trees by heavy chain.

While many of the dogs showed signs of fighting like scars and open wounds, others were emaciated and starved for human attention. Police say the dogs were very happy to be getting attention, their tails wagging as they were examined by a veterinarian.

The dogs will remain in custody of Animal Control during the investigation. Once released by the court, all suitable for homes will be placed up for adoption.
