Forensic Reports Show Injuries To Rapper DMX’s Dogs

DMXWarning: This story may disturb some readers.

The investigation continues into the allegations of animal abuse on rapper DMX’s Arizona property.

In August, twelve pit bulls were removed from DMX’s house during a raid. Authorities also dug up several dog bodies in the backyard. Late last month, investigators found serious wounds on two of the dogs that were found buried.

Now, there are new details into DMX’s animal cruelty case. Authorities said that several of the twelve pit bulls suffered from valley fever, an infectious lung disease. Also, three of the dogs found buried in the backyard may have died from the heat after the air conditioning broke down.

Forensic reports released from the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office said the bodies of the dogs were “significantly decomposed, the head and rear quarters and legs had a white trash bag around them; the body was wrapped in a dirt-stained beige fitted sheet and inside a clear plastic bag; all placed inside a white body bag.”

The report also showed possible signs of bruising on the left side and shoulder of a 60-pound pit bull.

Brad Blackwell, the caretaker for the dogs, reported to authorities that he told DMX that he could only take care of the dogs for a few days before going on vacation.

DMX’s attorney said Blackwell was being paid to care for the dogs and added that he had not left on vacation.

    Another disgusting person being paid thousands and possibly millions of dollars a year and he still could not take care of poor dogs that were all along being hideously abused as fighting dogs. DMX needs to go down just like M V. DMX has proved himself to be trash with no regard for feeling, loving animals.

    It’s too bad that dmx doesn’t have enough money to buy himself some self esteem. IF he had some he wouldn’t need his dogs to show that he is a man. A real man is compassionate to his fellow beings.

    throw him in jail and throw away the key

    One look at this rapper’s album cover and you want to run and hide.

    I don’t know that he has any engagements booked. If no money is coming in, makes me wonder what he’s using for income. I went to three ticket websites and couldn’t find one concert for him for this year.

    Yes, 3Furs, REAL men are compassionate towards animals. His dogs may make him FEEL like a man, but in my book they make him look like the total WUSS he really is.
