HOLLYWOOD, Ala. (WHNT) — Jackson County investigators rescued ten pit bulls Friday evening from a suspected dog fighting operation.

Hollywood Police Chief Jason Hepler and officer Luke Ballard said the County Road 36 property where they found the dogs was like a dog concentration camp.  Some dogs had head injuries and one had a broken leg.  Police also found skeletal remains of other dogs.
