14 pit bulls found amid flames in Alabama
Investigators say someone tried to burn 14 pit bulls to death in Alabama.
The dogs were found chained in Jefferson County, with a series of fires burning around them. Sheriff’s officials suspect they were part of a dogfighting operation.
Eight individual fires surrounded the dogs when firefighters arrived, according to Alabama’s 13 News.
Investigators found a treadmill of the type used by dogfighters to force dogs to train.
The dogs were all saved and taken to the Birmingham-Jefferson County shelter.
