An eastern Arkansas animal shelter says people have broken in to use dogs there for dogfighting for the second time in two weeks, leaving five animals injured.
 
In a Facebook post, the Humane Society of the Delta said a worker discovered the injured dogs Sunday morning at the shelter in Helena-West Helena, about 100 miles (160 kilometers) east of Little Rock.
 
The shelter previously had said its kennels had been broken into earlier this month for dogfighting. Four dogs had been injured, one seriously. The shelter says it wasn’t clear whether those breaking in were bringing their own dogs and using the shelter dogs for practice or were just having the shelter dogs fight each other. It said pit bulls in particular were targeted.
 
The shelter says it’s beefing up security and that some employees have been sleeping there at night.
