Dog Fighting Ring
A 34-year-old Minneapolis man is accused of organizing a dog fighting ring and breeding dogs for that purpose in at least eight locations, according to charges filed Friday by the Hennepin County Attorney. Leroy Longs Jr. was charged with one felony count of animal fighting in connection with the case.
Local animal control officials made a disturbing find that shows dog fighting is happening in the metro area. A 2 to 3-year-old pit bull was left in the animal control parking lot on Monday.
