    Default AL: Pit Bulls believed a part of dog fighting ring returned to owner

    BIRMINGHAM, Ala. --

    Several pit bulls that were found recently in what investigators believed to be an illegal dogfighting ring are being returned to their owner.

    Deputies were alerted to a fire in the woods near the 3400 block Woodruff Road. Shady Grove Fire advised that Pit Bulls were chained to trees and surrounded by the fire. The dogs were removed from the scene and taken to an animal shelter.

    A judge has now ruled that all but two of the 12 dogs can be returned to the their owner. State law requires a hearing when dogs are seized. It is then up to the judge to determine who should care for the animals.

    The owner was not charged because he said the one that had injuries consistent with dog fighting activity was picked up by the side of the road.

    Investigators could not find information to discredit the owner’s story. However, they are continuing to pursue all leads.

    Hilary Golston is following the case.
