Officers arrested Carolyn McIntyre, 39, Henry Stallworth, 22, and Jermaine Stallworth, 20, this week after a witness reported seeing a stolen pit bull at McIntyre's residence. Officers found eight pit bull terriers tied to trees behind the residence in the Needmore community some six miles northeast of Evergreen along U.S. 84, the sheriff said.
The dogs were in poor physical condition, he said, with injuries to their heads and necks. When officers searched the area, they found up to nine dead dogs discarded behind the mobile home in various states of decomposition, Hawsey said.
"We found a 15-by-15-foot fight pen behind the residence," Hawsey said. "It had four corner posts with roofing tin about three feet high all around. When the animals would get fatally wounded, they apparently just threw them out."
Investigators said they found a pit bull reported stolen from an Evergreen resident and another from a Burnt Corn resident. Both had injuries. The other dogs were placed at the county dog pound until authorities decide if they should be euthanized, Hawsey said.
Officers charged the three arrested with felony cruelty charges under the "Gucci Law" named after a chow burned by a Mobile man years ago. The charge carries a sentence of up to 10 years upon conviction. Both men were charged with theft of property and McIntyre was charged with receiving stolen property. All three were released Thursday on $2,500 bond.
