COLUMBIA CITY — Saturday’s dog-fighting bust has left many local residents asking the same question, “Why did those people come to Churubusco?”

Most of the 18 people arrested weren’t from Whitley County. In fact, 13 were from out of state. Most of the arrested came from the Gary-Chicago area, along with several from Michigan.

Brice said typically, dog-fighting rings publish underground magazines, e-mail and text message each other to get the word out about what they call a “dog show.” Saturday night’s show just happened to be hosted in Churubusco.
