UPDATE: Idaho Slayings-Dog Removal
April 10, 2013
BOISE, Idaho (AP) Dozens of pit bulls have been relocated to the Idaho Humane Society after being removed from an apparent dog-fighting compound in southeastern Idaho that was the site of a triple slaying.
The Humane Society says the 63 dogs are in poor condition. The Idaho Statesman reports most are underweight and malnourished, while many have lacerations and scars.
Others have skin, eye and ear ailments and broken bones that were untreated.
The dogs were at a rural ranch property outside the town of Holbrook, where the bodies of Brent L. Christensen, Trent Jon Christensen and Yavette Chivon Carter were found shot Friday.
The Idaho State Journal reports that Oneida County Jeff Semrad says police have spoken to witnesses that have led to possible suspects, but did not elaborate.
