Reports say Dorchester County Dog control officers seized the dogs during the investigation and found the dogs had various injuries consistent with dog fighting. Officials say Greenhawk was charged with animal cruelty and Dog fighting among other charges. She was reportedly released by a court commissioner on her own recognizance.
