Underweight, injured pitbulls removed from Flint home

FLINT (WJRT) -

(04/29/13) - A dozen underweight and injured pitbulls have been removed from a home on Flint's eastside, according to Genesee County Animal Control Chief Walt Rodabaugh.

Rodabaugh says his officers are also in the process of getting a warrant to go inside of the home because they know more dogs are there.

The home is in the 2400 block of Leith near Dort Highway. Those 12 dogs were removed from outside of the home Monday morning after someone called a tip in.

They are at the animal control shelter in Flint Township now.

"They have fighting scars or scars which appear to be from fighting," Rodabaugh says.  "Tumors, cancerous tumors, it looks like.  They're about anywhere from 40-60 percent underweight at this point."

Rodabaugh says those dogs were living in horrible conditions - no food or water plus six inches of feces.

Neighbors tell ABC12 they haven't seen anyone at the home in about a month.

Rodabuagh says the owner could be facing neglect charges.

If you know who lived in or owns the home, please call Genesee County Animal Control at 810-732-1660.
