DMX's Dogs: Buried Bodies Had Serious Wounds

9/23/2007 4:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

DMXTwo dogs found buried at a home belonging to rapper DMX had serious wounds, authorities investigating neglect allegations said Saturday.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio said one dog had serious bite wounds and another had trauma to its abdomen, but causes of death were not determined. A third dog was burned so badly an exam was inconclusive, reports the AP.

The investigation stems from an Aug. 24 raid of DMX's Phoenix home, when police were probing allegations of animal neglect. Police seized 12 live pit bulls, numerous weapons, and about a quarter-ounce of marijuana from the property.

"We have 12 dogs who were abused and three dogs buried in the yard," Arpaio said, "someone's going to have to pay."

DMX's lawyer, Murray Richman, said: "How do you attribute activities to a person who has not been there, when they have knowledge that other persons have been. Is it because of the celebrity nature?"

No charges have yet been filed against the 36-year-old rapper.

Without a doubt, when people abuse animals, they have something wrong with them. Also we all know this NONSENSE about people at your house abusing animals without your knowledge is silly!!! This is not good when Sheriff Joe enters the picture!!! This same defense cost MIKE "CON" VICK millions. I've no sympathy for people who abuse animals...............those sickos will get theirs from GOD and Joe Arpaio!!!!!!!!!!

Another sicko who declares his innocence. These people must think everyone is as stupid as they are. Why don't you stand up as a man and take responsibility for your actions? And like Vick, you can declare that you found God after you're sorry that you got caught. Maybe the Romans had the right idea....throwing the bad guys to the lions. Betcha they didn't have any animal abusers!

Disgusting. And they think that clueless "I didn't know what was going on" is a good excuse? Inexcusable. It is really nauseating that this will turned into a race issue, too. Why can't these guys keep their noses clean and stay out of trouble?

Democrats are evil    

Oh, and it's just a coincidence that this fellow is not a Caucasian. Open up your eyes people. This entertainment involving the death and destruction of dogs has everything to do with the culture and the environment in which you are raised. If you close your eyes to that fact, then you join the crowd of the ignorant and plain stupid. And be sure that TMZ doesn't have the guts to leave this post on its board. They are afraid of the truth just like the rest of the country.

No One Has any comments of the 2 white Arkansas Boys who HUNG a dog a slit it's throat and then stone him to death. O just so happen to be one of the GOVERNOR's kid. Or is it your comments are only good for when it's a black man.

Where PETA. Why haven't they gone to the doorstep of the GOVERNOR of Arkansa.?? It didnt hit the NEWS on TV. But then again he was a white Boy. Of course they wont put that on TV. Then they would have to treat him in the same way they have treated the BLACKS.
