      Judge allows Monroe group to evaluate seized dogs

      A judge is allowing a Monroe animal-rights group to evaluate four pit bulls that were seized during a dog-fighting raid.

      The Monroe Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals will have immediate access to the dogs so it can help determine whether the pit bulls are dangerous to humans.

      Monroe County Assistant Prosecutor Michael Brown says the dogs are dangerous and need to be euthanized.

      Trina Stillwagon of the Monroe SPCA believes the dogs can be adopted.

      The Monroe Evening News reports another hearing has been set for Tuesday.

      In early March, federal and local law enforcement officials raided what they say was a sizable dog-fighting ring in Raisinville Township. The crackdown netted two dozen arrests, and officials confiscated a number of dogs.
