The U.S. Attorney's Office has announced that two Kansas City men have been indicted for taking part in a Multi-State dog-fighting ring.

The men, 38 year-old Pete Davis, Jr. and 41 year-old Melvin Robinson, are charged with one count of buying, selling, delivering or transporting animals for participation in an animal fighting venture.

In a news release, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom says Davis and Robinson Kept and trained as many as 60 dogs on farm in Harrison County, Mo., and at their residences in Kansas City, KS, and transported some of them to fights as far away as Dallas, Texas.

If convicted, Davis and Robinson face a maximum penalty of five years in federal prison and a fine up to $250,000.
