Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nydailynews.com: “Pit bull attack on elderly woman may have exposed dog fighting ring”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The incident occurred Saturday in Hickory Grove, S.C., according to the York County Sheriff’s Office.

While investigating, police discovered the woman was at the property, which belongs to a family member, to look after 14 dogs. The pit bull somehow got loose and attacked the woman.

The woman was flown to Charlotte by helicopter for hospitalization. The extent of her injuries and her condition are unknown.

Deputies found the other dogs as well as “evidence...of the dogs being improperly restrained, aggressive, and lacking adequate food, water, and shelter,” said the York County Sheriff’s Office in a statement. “In addition, code enforcement officers are also investigating the possibility the animals were used for fighting. All 14 dogs were taken to York County Animal Control.”

“This incident speaks to the viciousness and violent nature of raising animals for the purpose of fighting and unfortunately caused very serious and unnecessary harm to an innocent and unintended victim," York County Sheriff Kevin Tolson said.
