Update: Owner of 22 Dogs Has Been Investigated Before

This video is no longer available.

 ROCK HILL, SC — In an update to a story you saw Tuesday night on WCCB News @ Ten, the York County Sheriff’s Office tells WCCB the owner of the 22 dogs tied up outside his Rock Hill home has been investigated in the past for dog fighting, but that nothing was found to validate the claim.

The Sheriff’s office also says the dogs’ owner is a veterinarian technician and bulldog breeder and has passed recent well-being checks by Animal Control.  

Neighbors and local rescuers say his story doesn’t add up.  They suspect illegal activity.
