GBI: Dogfighting Cases Common in Georgia

The Sparta police officer accused of dogfighting and animal cruelty transferred to the Hancock County Jail Wednesday afternoon, according to the Morgon County Sheriff's Office.

Tom Davis with the GBI says officers rescued a mom, her five puppes, and three other pitbulls from Travis Edwards' home Monday night. They called in Valerie Buckley with an animal shelter in Milledgeville to pick up all of the dogs and take them to Old Capitol Pet Care for treatment.

Veterinarian Saralyn Smith says all of the dogs showed signs of abuse. She says, "The scarring, the fight wounds are obvious. The two older females have been fought."

Smith says the dogs will head to Have-A-Heart animal shelter in Milledgeville after they recover.

Davis says dogfighting and animal cruelty are more common than many people think. He says, "It's a problem all over the state of Georgia. It's not just associated with Hancock County. We get calls quite regularly about this."
