OSHTEMO TOWNSHIP — Authorities say charges are expected after they seized dogs and dogfighting paraphernalia during a raid on a Kalamazoo-area home.

Kalamazoo County Animal Services and Enforcement Director Steve Lawrence tells the Kalamazoo Gazette the Oshtemo Township property searched Wednesday was home to a man who was convicted three years ago for his role in a dogfighting operation.

Lawrence says investigators sought a search warrant after they received tips that the man had dogs on his property. He says an investigation that included the assistance of the Humane Society of the United States found the man was trying to sell them for fighting.

The man wasn’t arrested Wednesday.

Lawrence says 10 dogs, including seven pit bull terriers, were seized but there was no evidence of dogfighting taking place at the house.

  5. I’m not sure what “dog fighting equipment” is, but I say take it and beat the stupid out of the waste of DNA individuals for being so cruel to these beautiful pups, then lock the jackwagons up for life with no chance of parole – make an example out of them.
