Police seize dogs, arrest man in dog fighting operation

 MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Fourteen pit bulls have been seized from what Memphis police say was a dogfighting operation.

Police arrested 37-year-old Donzell Marshall on Tuesday after they received a complaint about several men circled around dogs fighting in a back yard.

Marshall was charged with three counts of animal cruelty and a count of animal fighting.       Police say the dogs were malnourished and had physical injuries that were obviously the result of fights.

Police also seized a remote dog shocker and animal treadmills.
