Lafayette Authorities Investigate Dog-Fighting Incident


The man who first shared dog-fighting video is identified through facebook as "Kendrick Drummond." Authorities don't know if he is the one responsible for the fight, but he did post the video around seven o'clock monday night and is wanted for questioning.

His page has since been taken down since KATC first shared the story this morning. Drummond says on his page he lives in Lafayette, travels to Baton Rouge for school, and is originally from Amite. Police from across the state are now looking for him.

The video shows two dogs fighting each other, as spectators watch and cheer.

"It's disgusting, it's absolutely disgusting," Virginia Lee, Division Manager of Lafayette Animal Control said. Lee is leading its investigation into this dog fighting incident.

"This animal is just fighting for its life," Lee said.

Lafayette Sheriff's Office received a complaint about the video, and deputies are trying to determine who was involved and where the dog-fighting happened.

"We're looking at the background to see if there's anything recognizable that we would determine maybe is local, and hopefully being able to establish one way or another if it happened in our parish or not," Captain Kip Judice, Public Information Officer, Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office said.

While law enforcement agencies search for the man who posted the dog-fighting video on facebook, they're also searching for anyone who appeared in the video because even being a spectator is considered a felony.

"This is an animal that has feeling that is being forced to rip each other apart for self-satisfaction for an adult. And that's not something that needs to be done," Lee said.
