Two dogs found buried at rapper DMX’s home had serious bite wounds, according to the Arizona authorities who are investigating the singer for alleged animal neglect.

A third dog carcass was so badly burned that authorities couldn’t determine a cause of death, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpio says.

The investigation stems from an Aug. 24 raid on the rapper’s home, where police seized 12 malnourished pit bulls, weapons and marijuana, Arpio says.

A lawyer for the rapper, whose real name is Earl Simmons, has said DMX was paying caretakers and veterinarians to care for his animals.

No charges have been filed in the case yet, according to Arpio.

“Someone’s going to have to pay for this,” the sheriff told the Associated Press. “We have 12 dogs who were abused and three dogs buried in the yard – someone’s going to have to pay.”

what is up with these people doing this? its horrible. i went on aol mail to see the new micheal vick article and people left comments like there just dogs who cares. dogs feel pain, they have feelings just beacuse we cant communicate with them dosent matter. these people need to be in jail for a long time. they shouldent be allowed to have dogs. and if some one says another racits thing, look whos doing it, its not racist at all. if a white man was to do this hed get the same penalties, if a middle class white man did this hed be in more trouble because he dosent have the money to have a plea deal.

This is getting disgusting! Ig you do not want to take care of your dog(s) do NOT have them! These people need to be treated the same way they treat their dogs.

Once again, NO ONE should be above the law -- no matter who THEY think they are!
