I just drove there today at 1:30pm and observed a pittbull in the side yard and called humane officers but before they arrived a man came out and removed the dog and took him to a back building. I called the humane society again and they say there is nothimg they can do. That when they arrived they were told that a friend just left with his dog. I seen the same man in the back of the house at another building. He did not leave I think they are still fighting dogs there.
