HUMPHREYS COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Eleven pit bulls and one Rottweiler were rescued from a possible dog fighting operation in Humphreys County.

After receiving a tip about a suspected illegal operation near Isola, sheriff's deputies launched "Operation Delta Dogs."

The international non-profit animal protection organization Animal Rescue Corps provided medical attention to the extremely neglected and abused dogs. A-R-C officials identified dog fighting paraphernalia which led to the property owner's arrest.    

Authorities are not releasing that person's identity or additional information pending the outcome of the investigation.
