Neglected pit bulls seized from South Side home

Two dozen underfed and neglected dogs, a majority of them pit bulls, were seized from a home on the Far South Side on Wednesday, and a warrant remained active for the owner.

Vincent Medley, assistant director of Animal Care Services, said this is the second time in a year authorities have seized dogs from the Fest Road property belonging to Terrance Mouton. Last year, 36 pit bulls were removed, while this time ACS took 24 dogs into its care.

Mouton has a history of neglectful ownership, with a conviction for animal cruelty in addition to the two cases before the Bexar County District Attorney's Office, Medley said.

“We don't know for sure if he's fighting dogs, but what we saw is indicative of that,” he said.

The dogs were found chained up, with no food, water unsuitable for drinking and their dishes full of tadpoles and insects.
