Man Convicted Of Nearly 40 Counts Of Dogfighting, Animal Cruelty

RICHMOND, Virginia – A Dinwiddie County man was convicted Monday of 37 counts of animal cruelty and dogfighting involving 26 dogs.

Court records show that Eldridge Freeman participated in dogfighting on Wilson Road in Dinwiddie. Investigators found a fighting pit with carpet, a tarp for cover and what appeared to be blood stains on the inside.

“Dogfighting paraphernalia, heavily scarred dogs, wound dressings, and others items associated with dog breeding and dogfighting were also found on the property,” Attorney General Mark Herring said in a news release.

“Freeman housed the dogs in an inhumane way in plastic barrels, water tanks or plywood whelping boxes, all of which were not insulated and did not have bedding for the animals,” Herring’s office said.

Freeman will be sentenced in February.

18 of the 26 dogs seized are being put up for adoption however the Attorney Generals Office couldn’t say where these dogs are being adopted from.
