A staggering number of animals were discovered at an illicit Pierce County, Wisconsin, fighting operation on August 30. According to multiple sources, the troubling find was made while deputies were issuing a drug search warrant at a residence in Spring Valley.

The accused

The drug search warrant was issued for Houa Dia Yang – when deputies arrived to the property, they discovered a large dog fighting operation, cock fighting operation and indoor marijuana grow operation. The deputies also found meth at the property.

Though the warrant was for Yang, deputies also arrested the property owner, identified as Senyen Vang for suspicion of drug possession, reported KSTP News.

The animals on the property

The ASPCA was called in to assist with the staggering number of dogs and chickens on the property – the number of animals is reported to be approximately 1300. Jessica Rushin, with the animal welfare agency, told the news agency that the animals “lacked food, water and obvious medical care” and were living in conditions described as “deplorable.”

Fighting operation discovered

A fighting arena was found in a barn on the property and dogs were discovered tethered to heavy chains which were strategically spaced to keep the dogs from coming into contact with each other…but close enough to inspire frustration and aggression.

Sheriff Nancy Hove with the Pierce County Sheriff’s Office commented on the fighting operation discovery:

“This is the second large-scale animal cruelty case we have encountered in the past two years. When we are made aware of any animal cruelty issues, we do the best we can to investigate and hold those responsible accountable for the suffering they’ve caused these animals.”

The animals seized from the property were taken to temporary ASPCA shelters.

    There needs to be a death penalty for people this devoid of any kind of humanity. Seriously. What reason is there to allow scum like this to breathe, only to let them out of jail to do it all over again?

      I completely agree! There needs to be a way to tear them limb from limb. Inflict worse suffering on them than that which they inflicted on helpless animals.

    All these states that have dog fighting,cock fighting, should be rooted out, immediately shot between the eyes and remove all animal and then burn the place down. No mercy of any sort to these vile monsters who prey on these animals for money and will throw them away at any moment. This country needs to take these animal crimes seriously and eliminate it from recurring again. Sounds heartless, but something drastic must be done.
