Reported by Maureen Kocot

Pit bulls were rescued from a house in northeast Columbus, and officials say the homeowner has been in trouble with authorities before.

Three of the nine dogs had to spend the night at a vet hospital, and 10TV got their first look at animals' injuries Wednesday morning.

Humane agents say the pit bulls were suffering from bites and malnutrition. Investigators say those wounds are consistent with dog fighting.

Agents rescued the pit bulls from this home on Brentnell Avenue Tuesday night after several complaints of abuse.

The owner of the house, Terry Hicks, has had at least five run-ins with Franklin County Animal Control, dating back to last year when Hicks was cited for failure to license and failure to immunize.

In March of this year, there were 19 more citations, including improper confinement of a vicious dog.

One month later there were two citations for failure to control, that means dogs got loose.

Animal control says agents have visited the house on Brentnell Avenue twice in the past couple of weeks on more complaints that dogs were running loose.

Hicks is not facing any charges in connection with the dogs being taken from the house, and it will take at least one more day for humane agents to complete their investigation.

Heck, yeah He needs to be Charged i'm sure he will be but like it said theres one more day of Investigating to go. Just as of now He hasnt been i dont think this helps out Responsible PitBull Owners in the Ohio area either. All the Talk about Banning and everything else so many Counties are trying to fight these possible Bans. Already this Month and last Month there were Three Fatal Dog Attacks in Ohio. One was a Rott and i'm sure You can guess what the other two were so many Good Animals in the wrong Hands.
