Between May 18 and June 24, Kalamazoo County Animal Services & Enforcement (KCASE) executed 3 search warrants in the city of Kalamazoo as part of a crack-down on suspected dog fighting activity.
As a result of these warrants, two Kalamazoo men are facing felony animal fighting charges, and two others are facing misdemeanors for improper tethering. These charges are available for public viewing on the Kalamazoo County 8th District Court index as follows:
While all four men are facing charges, felony charges were not able to be pursued against two of them due to a lack of physical evidence, despite cell phone records and canine pedigrees connecting the men.
We are closely following these cases and we'll update you as we know more information.
