Sheriff investigates Florence dogfight, 8 charged

Florence County men have been charged with animal fighting and baiting after a raid by sheriff's deputies


FLORENCE, S.C. (AP) -- Eight Florence County men have been charged with animal fighting and baiting after a raid by sheriff's deputies over the weekend.


The Morning News of Florence reported (http://bit.ly/194ux3R ) that Capt. Mike Nunn said the men were arrested Saturday night after deputies arrived at a vacant lot where a fight was beginning. The men ran into nearby fields and woods, but were caught.


Officials confiscated four vehicles, three guns, powder cocaine, marijuana and an undisclosed amount of cash.


A young pit bull found at the scene was taken in for treatment of cuts to the head and neck and a possible broken leg. A second dog ran away.


Nunn says the investigation is continuing and other charges could be added.
