Three charged after dog fighting pit found, 13 dogs seized

YORK COUNTY, SC (WBTV) - Sheriff's deputies in York County have arrested and charged three men accused of running a dog-fighting operation in McConnells.

The York County Sheriff's Department received an anonymous tip on Saturday, February 20 about a dog fight that was in progress behind a home at 1350 McConnells Highway. 

When sheriff's deputies arrived, they followed a trail behind the house which led into the woods.  At the end of the trail, the deputies found a dog fighting pit with lights. There was lots of blood in the pit and buckets surrounding the pit, according to the sheriff's office.

Sheriff's deputies seized 13 pit bulls and they were taken to the York County Animal Control.

Anthoni Latoranodo Moore, George Burris and Deon Kentrall Burriss have been charged with animal fighting and other charges are pending.

They were being held at the York County Detention Center.
