The FBI along with the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and the Humane Society of the United States had raided a dog fighting ring in Alabama. Charges of animal cruelty and conspiracy were given to the organizer and co-conspirators.

A federal judge concluded sentencing this week for eight people arrested in the second largest dog fighting raid in U.S. history. Responsible for the deaths and injuries of hundreds of dogs, most of the defendants pleaded guilty to conspiracy along with dog fighting and gun charges. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) and The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) have been providing food, shelter, and medical care for the animals seized during the raid.
