CORDELE, GA (WALB) - Cordele police say they continue to find evidence of illegal dog fighting rings in the city.
Police Chief Bobby Hooper says most of the fighting takes place in vacant houses and lots, making them hard to track down.
They ask for the public's help in fighting this problem.
"We don't want anybody bitten or mauled by a dog in this community. And we have, we will take this with an approach of zero tolerance. If we catch you and we can hook you into a dog fighting situation, we will charge you, you will go to jail."
Chief Hooper says several small dogs have gone missing, so it's important to keep an eye on your animals.
