Police are looking for information about a possible dogfighting operation after two dead pit bulls discarded in Hampton last week were found to have bullet holes in their heads and severe bite wounds on their bodies.
The bodies of two full-grown female pit bulls were found on Jan. 5, wrapped in a carpet and dumped in a trash can behind an auto body business on West Pembroke Avenue in Hampton.
Police spokeswoman Allison Good said the necropsies on the dogs showed that they died of gunshots to the head. She said both animals had "multiple injuries to their front legs, shoulders, neck and head that were consistent with animal bites."
Good said animal control officers are investigating the dogs' deaths and looking into the possibility that they were used in a dogfighting operation.
