WEST MEMPHIS, AR- (WMC-TV) - Investigators said a pile of dead dogs dumped near West Memphis, Arkansas point to illegal dog fighting.
Six dead Pit Bulls were dumped in a ditch in a field near the Marion city limits.
"They were all PIt Bulls in different stages of decomposition," said West Memphis Police Chief Donald Oakes.
Also dumped alongside the dogs was a cow's head. Oakes said it was pretty clear the dogs had been used for fighting.
"The dogs have obvious injuries, ears missing," said Oakes.
Investigators said the Pit Bulls had been dropped individually instead of all at once.
"I don't think that's right," said neighbor James Williams. "Shouldn't be fighting dogs, that's one thing. That's cruelty to animals."
People in a nearby neighborhood said they have not seen any Pit Bulls there.
