12 arrested in dog fighting ring

Posted: Updated:

MANY, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - A dozen people were arrested when Sabine Parish deputies raided a dogfighting event in progress in the woods of a rural area of the parish.

Sheriff's office Warden Joe Dewil Jr. says deputies arrested 10 adults and two juveniles during Saturday night's raid, while dozens more fled from the scene.

Dewil says the dogfighting ring is one the department had been investigating for several months with help from tips from citizens.

Each adult was booked in the Sabine Parish Detention Center on dogfighting and aggravated cruelty to animal charges, as well as two counts of contributing to the delinquency of juveniles.
