Default NC: Randolph County man arrested after fighting dogs seized from his home

North Carolina shuts down another case of dog abuse when it raided a Randolph County home. There were 16 dogs seized and the perpetrator was charged with 16 counts of dog fighting, 11 counts of animal cruelty and 1 count of possession of drug paraphernalia.

Jeffrey Lynn Denny 36, address listed as 3910 Cool Springs Church Road, Franklinville, NC, was arrested in Bedford County, VA. While he was being arrested, his home was being raided by Randolph Co. Sheriffs Office vice unit, the Randolph Co. Health Dept and the Humane Society

Franklinville in Randolph county is located south of Greensboro..

The NC raid was prompted by a tip from Bedford County law enforcement of possible dog fighting at Denny's home..

Found during the raid was the 16 pit bull dogs, dog fighting paraphernalia, eight guns with ammunition and drug paraphernalia.

The Humane Society’s animal fighting campaign manager, John Goodwin, said Denny is one of only a handful of “transporters” in the illegal world of dog fighting.

Transporters are paid to bring female pit bulls to customers in order to breed for dog fighting purposes, Goodwin said.

This arrest is just another drop in the bucket of ridding the world of inhumane and cruel people who feel animals are property and not warm-blooded, loving creatures. If you suspect dog fighting or dog abuse in your neighborhood, please report it to your local animal control or Humane Society. This must be stopped.

Default Update: Undercover Sting Leads to Dog Fighting Arrest

Update: Undercover Sting Leads to Dog Fighting Arrest
posted 7:01 pm Wed May 26, 2010 - Beford Co., VA

Bedford County authorities say they've dealt a huge blow to a national dog fighting ring by locking up one of its top breeders.

The Bedford County Sheriff's Office announced Wednesday that they arrested Jeffrey Denny, 36, of North Carolina in an undercover sting at the Exxon in Montvale Monday night.

Denny was there to sell a female pit bull and planned on driving to Charleston, West Virginia to sell another dog, authorities say.

He has been charged with two counts of transporting animals for the purpose of fighting.

Investigators say Denny has delivered dogs all over the country, and they believe he's responsible for hundreds of dog fighting deaths.

The good news is the two dogs taken from him are now in an animal shelter, saved from a life of violence.

Deputies say he has a reputation for breeding good fighting pit bulls.

"Mr. Denny is a nationally known and admitted dog fighter," Bedford County Sheriff Mike Brown said. "He's acknowledged that he's sold hundreds of game-bred dogs throughout the United States."

Investigators seized Denny's mini-van, rigged to transport multiple dogs. These dogs were going for $900 apiece. The business of dog fighting is reported to be a multi-million dollar industry.

"And not too many of them put in 1099s to the IRS," Brown said with a laugh.

Two dogs confiscated by Bedford Co. authorities

The US Humane Society says they've had Denny at the top of their watch list for months.

"He's been a long-standing breeder of dogs that are for the purpose of fighting," US Humane Society Cruelty Investigator Chris Schindler said.

They're certain word of his arrest will get around.

"It's this effort that's going to send a ripple effect cross the country to other animal fighters that this crime is not going to be tolerated," Schindler said.

And they say the goal is to save the lives of dogs.

"Save possibly hundreds and hundreds of other dogs from being maimed and killed in the most gruesome way," Brown said.

Authorities in Randolph County, North Carolina also seized 16 pit bulls from Denny's home. They've charged him with 16 counts of dog fighting and 11 counts of cruelty to animals.
