Starving pit bulls taken from DMX's house



Tbddmx082807 These sure are the dog days of summer: the Phoenix-area home of rapper DMX was raided by sheriff’s deputies last week after authorities were tipped off that several dogs were being kept in inhumane conditions, the AP reports.

They seized 12 pit bulls and found the remains of three other dogs buried at the home, where a caretaker had not been giving the dogs food or water. They also found a bunch of guns, but needed to pursue new warrants to determine their legality.

The rapper was not at the residence at the time (he’s been away for a couple months) and was “extremely disturbed” at the news, attorney Murray Richman said. “He loves dogs — he loves these animals,” Richman said.

“Those dogs are practically his family.” Because we often burn out family members and bury them in the back yard after starving them to death.
