Man accused of punching pit bull, forcing dog to fight

A man in York, Pennsylvania, is accused of repeatedly punching a pit bull, and forcing the dog to fight at a park. According to Monday’s WGAL News, the man accused of the crime has been identified as 39-year-old Aaron Rankin.

On the night of October 14, local police officers were called to investigate a possible dog fighting situation at  Foundry Park. Responding officers found Rankin with two pit bulls – a witness in the area told the officers that before their arrival, dogs were heard fighting and Rankin could be heard saying, “Let them go, let them fight.”

One of the witnesses claims to have seen Rankin repeatedly punching one of the dogs – the alleged beating lasted for several minutes. One of the two dogs in Rankin’s possession had injuries to the face and ear – both dogs were confiscated and the injured dog was taken for veterinary care.

Rankin is facing multiple charges for the alleged crime, including animal fighting, and cruelty to animals.

Dog-fighting is an ongoing problem in many areas of the nation. If you see something suspicious, please report the activity to the local authorities.
