Gwinnett follows dog fighting leads.

From the Gwinnett Daily Post:

Only one day after Gwinnett County Sheriff Butch Conway announced his plans to offer a $10,000 personal reward for tips leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone involved in dogfighting in Gwinnett County, department spokeswoman Stacey Bourbonnais said the department has already received calls and e-mails with possible tips.

“I don’t think we really knew what to expect,” Bourbonnais said of the rapidness of the tips coming into the department. “We hoped there wouldn’t be any people involved in it (dogfighting) in Gwinnett County – I think that’s always a hope you have.”

Bourbonnais said the department has received several calls from Gwinnett residents saying they know of people living in the county who may be involved in the fighting, two of which provided investigators with names and enough information to begin investigations. Bourbonnais said it is unknown if fights are occurring in the county, but information leads investigators to believe there are residents allegedly involved.

  1. A person only needs to take a walk through Smiley’s Flea Market in Macon to see the dogs being sold there. I quit going to Smiley’s because of the animals being sold and the meaness of them. I saw pit bulls and roosters being mistreated.

    You walk into Smileys and you wonder what country you’re in.

    I hadn’t replied to this until now because it makes my blood boil. You’d have to be a complete idiot to not know that dog fighting is occurring in GC.
