Dog fighting ring busted in South Bound Brook

Prosecutors have charged five people in connection to a Bound Brook dog fighting ring discovered over the weekend.

Authorities descended on the home after receiving an anonymous tip.

Police say they found a blood-stained fighting ring, injured dogs and a bucket of bloody water at the home. There were no signs of pet food or toys and police say they heard dogs barking, as well as people clapping and shouting.

The dogs were deemed unsuitable for adoption Tuesday and must be euthanized.
