Dead dog discovered in dog food bag after arrest for dog fighting

In Brownsville, Florida a dead dog was discovered in a dog food bag after authorities responded to a complaint about dog fighting on Thursday.  Police received a tip that dog fighting was going on in a home located at NW 22nd Court reporting there were dogs  that had been killed.

One witness claimed he saw the owner of the home carrying a deceased dog in a dog food bag towards an open field. Police were able to find the dead dog inside of the bag. He had puncture wounds on his head and his face. In their report, police stated they found the same type of dog food bags in the rear of the owner’s pickup truck.

According to NewsLocal10, Glenn Carlton Smith, 52, allowed authorities entry into the home where six neglected and injured dogs were found locked in cages in the backyard. Inside of the home, police found two treadmills and a scale commonly used to train dogs for fighting.

One dog had a possible broken leg and another dog had lacerations, dogs bites and blood stains on his face.

Smith has been arrested on charges of animal cruelty, training and breeding animals to fight. The dogs have been removed from the home.

Dog fighting is unlawful in all 50 states as well as the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. In all states, it is against the law (and often a felony) to attend a dog-fighting event. In 2014, President Obama signed the Farm Bill which contained the U.S. H.R. 366/S 666 – Animal Fighting Spectator Prohibition Act.

There is a loophole, however in 49 out of 50 states still making it legal to possess dogs for fighting.

    The authorities should do that town a favor and leave this guy tied up and let the dogs go after him and tear him to pieces. I know that won’t happen but he deserves something severe where his life hangs in the balance.

    Yup. Politically correct or not, the fact is black folks love dogfighting. It is a primitive, violent culture. The Amish run the WORST puppy mills in the nation. Catch up, Troglodytes! It’s 2019!

    All the way from Australia, I echo the words of each commentor above. That loophole needs to be closed right now, no more discussion. The individual and, no doubt he had helpers who should join him, needs to be locked up for life with no possibility of parole before he is too old to run and then to be on cleaning duties at a large animals’ wildlife sanctuary where all animals are free to roam 24/7 – for the remaining time of his life sentence – the only work suitable for such lowlife barbaric characters. Harsh? No harsher than what he has done to so many precious and voiceless animals.
