- Mississippi, USA -
On the morning of Tuesday, October 4, 2022, an officer with the Madison Police Department Criminal Interdiction Unit conducted a traffic stop on Interstate 55 southbound near the 108-mile marker in the City of Madison.
Madison police said in a news release that during this stop, the officer became suspicious of criminal activity and during a probable cause search of the vehicle, the officer recovered marijuana along with eleven dogs.
Police said the dogs were inside multiple cages, were malnourished, and one of them had injuries consistent with dogfighting.
The officer then called in an investigator with animal control who removed all eleven dogs and took them to a local veterinarian for emergency care and treatment.
Police arrested the driver of the van, 56-years-old EDWARD THEODORE BRONAUGH (pictured), of Indianapolis, Indiana. BRONAUGH was charged with transporting dogs for the purpose of dogfighting, animal cruelty, and possession of controlled substance.
BRONAUGH is being held at the Madison County Detention Center awaiting his initial appearance in the City of Madison Municipal Court.
Police said the investigation is ongoing and District Attorney John “Bubba” Bramlett was contacted. The case will be forwarded to his office for prosecution and potential forfeiture proceedings based upon the animal cruelty and transportation charges.
As I always say whenever I publish a dogfighting related story, I have nothing but hatred for those filthy individuals who make blood money at the expense of innocent animals!
If you like fights, just throw your friends and family into a ring and watch them injure each other!
Only a sick individual can watch animals fight. Just get an honest job!!!
