45 Animals Rescued From Suspected Kansas Dogfighting Ring

DONIPHAN COUNTY, Kansas – Authorities say they have arrested a man and rescued 45 animals from a suspected dogfighting operation in Doniphan County, Kan.

Kansas authorities said they have uncovered a suspected dogfighting operation and rescued 45 animals being kept in “deplorable” conditions.

The operation was uncovered Thursday when the Kansas Bureau of Investigation served a search warrant on the property in Doniphan County in northeast Kansas near Atchison.

The KBI was assisted by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, which is now caring for the adult dogs and puppies found on the property.

In a joint press release, the ASPCA and KBI said some of the animals had scars and other injuries common in dogfighting. They said that paraphernalia associated with dogfighting was also recovered.

Colton R. Albright, 28, of Bendena, Kan., was arrested and is facing multiple charges. He was booked into the Doniphan County Jail on 42 counts of dogfighting, four counts of possession of dogfighting paraphernalia, one count of animal cruelty and other drug and illegal weapons charges.
