SALISBURY, N.C. -- Police took eight dogs from a Salisbury home and charged the owner with dog fighting recently. It’s the second time in a week police were at the home on Cemetery Street.

Last Friday, police said they found a video tape of dog fighting and worked this week to get warrants. “Tape was in a video camera, seized, brought it back here, looked at it and there was evidence of dog fighting,” said Chief Mark Wilhelm of the Salisbury Police.

Friday, they returned to take the dogs. “They’ve identified some of the dogs on the tape, but typically if there’s evidence of that, you seize all the dogs,” said Wilhelm.

Four adult dogs and four puppies were taken as evidence, and will stay at the Rowan County Animal Shelter.

“It puts a major burden on us,” explained Officer J.D. Staton of Rowan Animal Control. “People don't realize the space we have and when we have to deal with these dogs and we have to keep them by their selves and they could be here for however long the court process goes.”

Brad Simpson was arrested and charged with two counts of dog fighting. No one at the home had anything to say about it. Simpson posted bond and was released on Friday.

this is a subject that is just horrible to me.............. such an easy fix-- when proven to be involved with dog fighting..and the proof needs to be more realistic... If a person has what any ignoramous can tell is dog fighting equipment and such-- lock their behinds up-- ruin their lives for 10 years.... send a message !!

this is so tied with so many other crimes.. Joe and Jane public just dont want to know this...

proven dog fighting should be a 10 year federal offense.. throw away the key-- game over boys..-- this would work... make this crime sting to the non humans that do this..
