Dog Fighting Breeder Found Tied Up And Beaten Pretty Bad By Masked Men


A 52-year old Detroit man and suspected dog fighting breeder was reportedly outside feeding his dogs when he was confronted by three armed men wearing masks to conceal their identities.

The masked men forced him into his home where they tied him up before brutally beating and torturing him before cutting off his ear and driving away in his van.
“They tied him up (the dog fighting breeder); they beat him up pretty bad.
Broke ribs, broke fingers, stabbed him with ice picks, cut an ear off.

It’s just messed up,” the victim’s cousin Marty Johnson said.
Police believe the man was targeted because of his Pit Bull breeding operation which may be tied to dog fighting.
When police arrived at the man’s Detroit property, they found at least 16 Pit Bulls tied up outside, emaciated and living in filth in the backyard, and at least a dozen more in the same poor condition in the home’s basement.
A second property owned by the man was also housing dozens of unhealthy dogs.

Animal Control was called to the properties to remove the dogs, but family members insist the man was not involved in dog fighting, that he only breeds the dogs to sell them.
“No, he don’t fight dogs. He breed dogs. No, he don’t fight dogs,” the victim’s brother explained. “He has a lot of dogs; it’s been like that since we was kids.”
The man is now recovering at the hospital. He is facing misdemeanor animal cruelty charges for the condition in which his dogs were found.
The men who tortured him have not yet been found and no arrests have been made.

Do you think this man got what he deserved?


  1. Yes,if he was breeding them for dog fights. But if he can’t feed or look after his animals it’s still neglect an abuse. I do believe that the guys who did this went to far, they are not above the law.

  2. Karma ! I don’t believe in violence but if he’s a breeder he sucks and if he’s using them for fighting he got what he deserves.

  3. I don’t believe he’s not involved in a dog fighting ring & even if he truly isn’t he should probably think twice about not taking good care of the dogs!! Emaciated and unhealthy dogs & the ones in another house in the basement?? It seems he was torturing them by neglecting them so they would become mean to each other.!! As a dog lover I would say he got what he deserved however as a Christian I would have to say we are supposed to help not hurt each other but this includes animals.. So, yeah it is hard for me to say no because it’s wrong on both sides but as a animal parent I say yes!

  4. Fighting animals isn’t right and breeding so many that you can’t afford to take care of them is wrong. Neglect is abuse and fighting pits is ABSOLUTELY wrong. Obviously some people who got away with what they did to this man believes he got what he deserved.
