The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office were shocked this week at the horrific dog abuse of 11 pit bulls found starving and locked outside of a home near Highway 70. The dogs were rescued on Wednesday night; each one of them weighed less than one-half of what dogs their age and breed should weigh.

According to Fox News, an employee from an energy company discovered the dogs and called authorities. Monroe County deputies arrested Duran Brown and Scarlett Watson for the alleged abuse and have now charged the couple with 11  misdemeanor counts of animal cruelty. Investigators believed the dogs were being used for breeding and fighting.

Out of the Ashes Pit Bull Rescue are caring for the dogs. Katie Miceli, the director of the organization said the dogs had no food or water. Especially concerning was the discovery of one female who had recently given birth to a litter of puppies, but they were nowhere to be found. Katie believes the mother ate her puppies out of desperation.

Donations and supplies are needed to help these dogs. For more information how you can help, please click here. Check out the group’s Amazon Wish List.

    This should be a felony and they must be convicted and be put in jail for many years. Dog fighting is illegal,what they have done to these dogs is criminal and they must be given the stiffest sentence possible and be made an example for other dog breeders/dog fighters. This country, all states must change the laws and make what these scum have done a felony where they will go to jail for many years. If not, they will be back on the streets doing this to other innocent dogs.

    What is this misdemeanor crap??? This is FELONY animal abuse and these two hunks of maggot shit, namely Dirtbag Duran Duran Brown and Scumsuck Scarlett Watson need a dose of their own medicine – hogtie their useless asses and dump them in the nearest landfill OR just stick them in a trash compactor and watch them be crushed – they deserve no less – AND the Monroe County Sheriff’s department pretty much shows the lack of humanity and/or brain power since they made the illiterate decision to charge this as a misdemeanor – shows exactly their degree of intelligence – somewhere in the vicinity of third grade.

    Until the courts and Judges stop just slapping these monsters hands for this horrific abuse of fighting animals it will not stop. The punishment is not threatening or sever enough for monsters to NOT want to take the chance. So all these beautiful animals pay for the vile creatures who do this because the courts WILL NOT PUNISH them.

      It’s almost as if the judges and law enforcement are in on these dog fighting rings. They do NOTHING to change the power these violent, sub-human maggots have and any judge who gives out these light sentences, I pray they are the next VICTIM of EXTREME violence. If their child was molested or beaten by one of these monster they’d be screaming for justice, but when it comes to an animals, MANY seem like they don’t give a crap or it’s too much of a bother. NOTE to these ass wipes: you reap what you sow. So when the time comes that one of these derelict public servant bastards’ family member gets hurt by a violent thug they let off, I will NOT care!

    I pray the wrath of God finds Duran Brown and Scarlett Watson with a beating that leaves them BLIND AND CRIPPLE and thrown in a cage leaving them middle of nowhere to starve to death. Eye for an eye…wait for it!
