Investigation Continues at Sharp County Kennel

September 4, 2003 - Posted at: 10:00 p.m. CDT

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- A federal investigation continues in Sharp County on allegations of animal abuse at a Williford kennel.

K8 News first reported that authorities raided the Martin Creek Kennels in Sharp County last week. Federal, state and local investigators seized about 125 dogs from owner and operator C.C. Baird, a licensed dog dealer who sells animals to research facilities across the country.

The seized animals are now being housed at the Arkansas State Fairgrounds in Little Rock. It is believed that some of the dogs seized have been stolen from area families.

"I can say that there is a question about whether some of these dogs actually were pets that were stolen," said U.S. Attorney Bud Cummins. "We'll be trying to make the animals available if there are people out there that think their dogs have been stolen and might have been at this kennel."

Since the investigation is continuing, Cummins will not release details about what prompted the investigation, or why the animals were seized.
