Multi-State Dog Fighting Ring Leads Investigators to East Texas

Federal authorities in Kansas say they have broken up a multi-state dogfighting ring that included training pit bulls to fight in Kansas, Missouri and led authorities to the Tyler Texas area.

Pete Davis Jr. and Melvin L. Robinson were charged in a criminal complaint unsealed Monday in the U.S. District Court for Kansas. Court documents outline a dog fighting ring that involved nearly 100 dogs, in three states, mostly pit bulls.

Last week federal, state and local agencies rescued nearly 20 dogs before a fight began just west of Tyler.

The complaint accuses the men of holding weekly dogfights in northwest Missouri, training the dogs at a Kansas City, Kan., residence, where the dogs were put on treadmills with live chickens used as bait. The complaint also says at least one dog was taken to Texas last weekend for fighting.
