Police believe they have broken up a dog-fighting ring in south Minneapolis. Police told local reporters that when they arrived at a residence near 28th St. E. and 12th Ave. S., A group of people and dogs ran away. One dog was bleeding, according to officials."They bring their dogs down and they try to fight our dogs. My dogs are friendly," said pit pull owner Samuel Tucker. Tucker said the incident was not due to dog fighting. "It did sound like there was an organized pit-bull fighting action going on at that time. This is a huge cruelty to animals," said Minneapolis Police Sgt. Jesse Garcia. Minneapolis Police made no arrests, but did seize one pit bull.
