FRANKLIN, N.Y. – Delaware County Sheriff Craig DuMond says an arrest has been made in connection with suspected dog fighting in Franklin.
The sheriff’s office seized 20 dogs from a Franklin barn in early February. Deputies say the dogs were inappropriately held and appeared neglected.
The Susquehanna SPCA took six of the dogs that were removed from the home. SPCA Executive Director Stacie Haynes said the dogs were living in travel crates, and some had scars all over. One dog even had a staple in her nose, after it seemed to have been “ripped in half,” according to Haynes.
On Thursday, DuMond said a suspect had been charged, and details would be released tomorrow.
