York County Sheriff’s Office deputies were investigating an ongoing issue Thursday that violated the York County animal-restraining requirements ordinance.

Deputies found dozens of pit bulls chained to car axles buried in the ground, and evidence of potential dogfighting.

Deputies obtained a search warrant, which allowed them to seize the dogs.

“This is a good example of Animal Control and the York County Sheriff’s Office working together to protect our community and animals,” Sheriff Kevin Tolson said in a news release.

The investigation is ongoing, and further information about the pit bulls' conditions can be provided by York County Animal Control.
