MACON, Ga. — Police in Macon are investigating after someone broke into an animal rescue facility and released roughly two dozen dogs from their cages, sparking a dogfight that left three animals dead.

Macon police spokeswoman Jami Gaudet said in a statement Friday that the department takes crimes against animals seriously and is seeking the public’s help in identifying the suspect who broke into the facility operated by All About Animals earlier this week.

Gaudet says additional security measures have been added to the facility.

The Telegraph reports three large American bulldogs were killed, and as many as 15 other dogs needed medical treatment.
