A Pentagon official has been charged with running an illegal dog fighting ring out of his home.
According to the Justice Department, Deputy Chief Information Officer at the Pentagon Frederick D. Moorefield Jr has been charged with promoting and furthering an animal fighting venture.
On September 6, federal agents reportedly raided Moorefield’s Arnold, Maryland home outside of Washington, DC. During that raid, agents found battery jumper cables as well as five dogs identified as pit bulls. There were also weighted collars, heavy metal chains breeding equipment to impregnate female dogs, and bloodstains consistent with dog fights.
