A West Jordan man is accused of dog fighting and cruelty to a pit bull.
In charges filed Tuesday, police wrote that a man reported seeing two men holding leashed dogs that were fighting while a third man videotaped the fight on June 30 at a park near 8300 South and 4300 West. The man said the dogs didn't have muzzles, and he could hear a dog whimpering.
Officers found a group of people with two pit bulls at the park. One of the pit bulls, named Pawk, was panting, lethargic and collapsing on his side, police wrote. Pawk's right ear was bleeding, and he was wearing a mesh muzzle, preventing him from panting effectively, police wrote.
