Dogfighting Video: Biggest Bust in History of Bloody Sport Recorded by Undercover Cop

This week's cover story in New Times details a dogfighting bust that involved eight states, 107 suspects, and 500 dogs. More than anything, though, it'll be remembered for how it went down: Police fought their own dogs to gain the suspects' trust.

As part of the case, investigators shot a video from a hidden camera that captured a gory fight from the two pit bulls. The video, after the jump, came from the Riverfront Times, New Times' sister paper in St. Louis. Warning: It contains graphic content of a "roll," when two young pit bulls are matched violently against each other.
