Local man arrested, charged with dog fighting, 2nd degree cruelty to animals after the A.C.E. Unit discovered he was running a sophisticated dog fighting ring in the city

Louisville, KY – The Louisville Metro Police Department recently received a detailed tip about a man running a sophisticated dog fighting ring in the city. The tip was routed to the Animal Cruelty Enforcement (A.C.E.) Unit, which works closely with Animal Control on such cases.

Kareem Garner, born on February 15, 1977, has been charged with four felony counts of Dog Fighting and four misdemeanor counts of 2nd Degree Cruelty to Animals. The investigation revealed that Garner had been operating the dog fighting ring for an extended period. Authorities allege that his stature in the dog fighting world is “prolific,” with a significant reputation in the region.

Earlier this month, police executed a search warrant at Garner’s home in the 1300 block of Lillian Ave. The conditions they discovered were appalling. Four dogs were found in terrible condition, living in kennels infested with feces or trapped in mud up to their legs. Several of the dogs were suffering from heartworms.

During the search, authorities recovered various items indicative of dog fighting, including supplements and medications, weighted collars, scales, carpet mills, dog fighting paperwork, and spring poles. All four dogs were seized and are now receiving care at Louisville Metro Animal Services.

This arrest marks a significant step in combating animal cruelty in the Louisville area. The police department is relieved that Garner is now facing several felony charges for his actions.
