Animal Control Kills 43 Dogs

Polk County Animal Control workers have euthanized 43 of the 139 dogs seized last week after a Mulberry man was charged with breeding the animals to fight, the Sheriff's Office said.

Deputies found the dogs, including some puppies, emaciated and malnourished at a home on Pump Road southwest of Mulberry.

Hewitt Grant, 38, who lived at the home, was arrested. He has been charged with 19 counts of felony animal cruelty and more than 50 misdemeanor counts of animal cruelty.

Grant posted $47,000 bail and was released Saturday, according to jail records.
