Pit bull found with bite marks in same neighborhood as two others

When: 2012-07-17 09:47:00 -0700
Where: South Pershing Avenue, York, Pennsylvania, United States


Details:

Three pit bulls have been found in the same area of York, Pennsylvania suffering from severe bite wounds in the past six months.

Melissa Smith, executive director of the York County SPCA said, "We certainly don't have any evidence of a dogfighting ring." She pointed out, however, "What we're seeing would lead us in the direction that dogfighting is occurring."

The latest victim is a 2- to 3-year-old pit bull named Honey, who underwent surgery after she was found in York about a week ago. Both Honey and Julep, a dog previously found in the city, have been diagnosed with Babesia, a parasitic disease most commonly transmitted by bite wounds.

When Honey was found on South Pershing Avenue, her jaw was so injured that she couldn't eat normally.

There is a animal cruelty investigation into what happened to Honey underway and a $5,000 reward is being offered by the U.S. Humane Society.

"The address where the dog lived or the name of the person who owned her - those two things would be very helpful to start an investigation," Smith said.

The Central Pennsylvania Animal Alliance also raised $10,000 to cover Honey's surgical care. 

One of the other Pit bulls found has since been adopted but the third had to be put down for humane reasonsn.

If anyone has any information regarding the three pit bulls they are asked to contact the York County SPCA or Central Pennsylvania Animal Alliance. 

To report suspected dogfighting activity, call the anonymous 24-hour dogfighting tip line at (877) NO-2-FITE.

I think everyone could report anything that looks like it might be signs of dog-fighting, or animal cruelty.
