Dogs belonging to a suspected dog fighter were euthanized after being seized from a home in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. As reported by WBRZ News, the 19 dogs, including three puppies, were considered to be “contraband” in the case. Animal control director Hilton Cole stated:
“Upon seizure, they are essentially euthanized humanely. That way the bloodline and the fighters are basically put out of business.”
The accused dog fighter
Officials seized the 19 dogs from 55-year-old Kevin Valentine, a man who has been arrested two times in the past for dog fighting violations. Because of Valentine’s dog fighting past, he is not allowed to have dogs – a rule he apparently has ignored. After being arrested on 19 dog fighting charges, Valentine was released on $12,000 bond.
