An apparent dog-fighting operation was disbanded about 7:45 p.m. Monday by Jefferson County Sheriff's deputies, and arrests could be forthcoming. Jefferson County Assistant Chief Deputy Rod Carroll says the dog fighting was discovered by deputies on the 8000 block of Rogers Avenue after they responded to reports of a loose horse.
While investigating the property behind a home, deputies saw a group of as many as 50 people quickly bolt from the scene into nearby woods. That's when the deputies found a large pen framed in with plywood, and six pit bulls. They saw the blood of the dogs was all over the walls of the makeshift fighting cage.
