On Jan 28, police found 15 pit bulls in what they believe was a large dog fighting ring in Flint. The dogs were found inside a home near Saginaw and Stewart Ave.

FANG (Flint Area Narcotics Group) weren't looking for a dog fighting ring at the time but that's what they found while issuing a warrant during a controlled substance investigation.

According to MLive, along with seizing a large amount of cocaine and a firearm, detectives located 15 pit bulls in multiple rooms inside the residence and in the back yard.

It was very obvious what was going on especially after discovering a weighted dog sled, dog treadmills, and other items related to dog fighting rings.

The dogs are safe and being taken care of while the investigation continues.

I just don't understand the attraction to dog fighting, it makes zero sense to me. I'm always blown away when I see a story like this because I have a hard time wrapping my head around the idea of people doing something like this to an animal.
