Six dogs found tethered to trees on wooded property in Georgia

Not far from an elementary school in Rockdale County, Ga., six dogs were discovered chained to trees, in the midst of a heavily wooded piece of property, reported Thursday's WSBTV News.

Officials with the Rockdale County Animal Control were alerted to the dogs' presence on the property by someone who phoned in a report.

Responding officials found the tethered dogs, who are described as pit bulls, along with other items which have raised suspicion that the dogs were being kept for dog-fighting purposes.

Ciji Baker, with the Rockdale County Animal Control, stated that empty bags of dog food, dog houses and water were with the dogs, along with other items which suggest that dog fighting could be involved; he stated:

“Then there was some iron supplements, de-wormer, Ivermectin and things like that found on scene,”

The owners of the property where the dogs were discovered claims that the dogs do not belong to them.

The dogs were taken back to the animal control facility to be held; 72 hours is the typical stray hold, but these dogs are going to be provided with additional time.

No one knows if the dogs taken from the property had already been fought, or if they were being prepped to fight. If an owner does not come forward, the animal control agency is hopeful that a rescue organization will be able to take them in.
