According to WQAD Police obtained nearly 60 dogs, drugs and a gun during a bust of a dog fighting ring today in Davenport and Rock Island.

Nearly a dozen search warrants were executed during the bust, while the dogs are being transported to a temporary shelter by the American Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA).

The investigation reportedly began a year ago after Rock Island Police obtained information.  Over the course of the investigation, several other agencies joined including the FBI's Quad CitiesGang Task Force.
