BEECH BLUFF, Tenn. — A Madison County road is being used as a dump site for dead pit bulls. “People complain that pits are bad dogs, but in all actuality in this situation it’s the human that’s the bad one,” said a neighbor who did not wish to be identified for fear of retaliation. On Friday afternoon, WBBJ 7 Eyewitness News counted three dead dogs in the ditch along Saint Road. “There’s two males dropped off around November, and the female was dropped off this past weekend,” the neighbor said. Neighbors say they have an idea of why this is happening. “If you have nine dogs over a year, it’s the same crew. It looks more like a dog ring that may be going on in the area.” Mardi McGill lives within walking distance of the dump site. McGill owns a pit bull. “It makes me sad because I wouldn’t want anything to happen to my dog,” she said. McGill said looking at this final resting place is upsetting.” I don’t like it. I think they should have had a proper burial, but being out here in the country, people just think they’re going to get picked up by other animals.” Officials say they have no suspects in the case. Residents say it is clear whoever is doing this does not care about these animals. “When these dogs have done nothing to nobody. They just want some love, and this is how you discard them? If you love something, you don’t just discard it.” Neighbors say they were contacted by the sheriff’s office who said the county would be by soon to pick up the dead animals.
