BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) –Bainbridge Humane Society workers euthanized all but one of seven neglected pit bulls they took in this week.

46-year old Terry Bernard Jackson confessed to leaving the dogs tethered in an abandoned lot without food or water for weeks.

Humane Society workers tell us most of the dogs were severely malnourished and the others were simply too aggressive to be adopted.

One pit bull remains at the shelter.

Workers say that dog is significantly healthier than the rest and not aggressive, giving hope that someone may adopt it.
