According to Wednesday's Orlando Sentinel, dozens of people were arrested on Tuesday night in a large dog-fighting bust which took place at a house in Apopka, Fla.

Following an extended investigation, authorities raided property on the 200 block of West Seventh Street where they interrupted a dog fight in progress, and encountered upwards of forty people, including children, who were watching the violent blood sport.

Though the spectators scattered, with the help of police canines, authorities were able to arrest 26 people. Seventeen dogs, some who were severely injured, were seized from the residence. According to WFTV News, officials found some dogs in cars and crates - others were released into the surrounding neighborhood.

No word on the fate of the dogs who were seized during the raid.
