PALATKA, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say about 100 people fled a dog fight in northeast Florida after deputies responded to the scene.
The Florida Times-Union (http://bit.ly/1UY0HoG) reports that deputies were called to a wooded area in western Putnam County late Saturday after people heard barking and loud noises in the area.
Deputies say two wounded dogs were found in an arena constructed of wood. They were among 19 dogs found.
Police say one of the seized dogs was later stolen after a break-in at the county’s animal control facility.
