*Serious wounds were discovered on two dogs found buried at an Arizona home owned by rapper DMX, authorities said Saturday.
According to Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, one of the dogs had bite wounds and another suffered trauma to its abdomen, but exact causes of death have yet to be determined. A third dog carcass had been burned so badly an exam was inconclusive, reports the Associated Press.
The dogs were discovered during an Aug. 24 raid on the rapper’s north Phoenix home following allegations of animal neglect. Authorities also seized 12 live pit bulls, numerous weapons, and about a quarter-ounce of marijuana in a bedroom, Arpaio said.
The sheriff initially said a half-pound of suspected narcotics was found, but tests showed the substance was not illegal drugs.
