Dogfighting Raid in Bronx, NY – Show Your Support on September 8th

Posted by April Nockleby, ALDF's Online Content Manager on September 5, 2008

In June, a team of New York and New Jersey authorities rescued 16 pit bulls and arrested seven men after raiding a Bronx neighborhood dogfighting ring allegedly run by defendant Alexander Estephane. For one embattled dog, rescue came to late despite veterinary intervention. The men face felony and misdemeanor charges of animal fighting as well as gambling.

If you are local resident or plan on being in the Bronx area, please show support your community and the prosecution by attending court proceedings on Monday, September 8th.­ ­The Court opens at 9:30am, however, no set start times are
scheduled for individual hearings. (Always contact the Court to confirm
