MACON, Ga. (AP) - Animal welfare advocates are planning to present an award to local, state and federal agencies that helped dismantle a large dogfighting ring.

Officials from the Humane Society of the United States say the organization will present its 2014 Humane Law Enforcement Awards Tuesday at the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Macon.

Officials say seven people were arrested after a four-year probe into a dogfighting ring involving more than 140 animals.

Officials say several agencies helped in the probe including the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, the U.S. Marshals Service and others.
