Dogs owned by Eagles running back Bryce Brown were seized in May at a Wisconsin kennel.  According to the Eau Claire (Wisc.) Leader-Telegram, the seizure of the adult female Pit Bull and seven puppies occurring in connection with a broader dogfighting investigation.

On Friday, a judge ordered that the dog and its litter be returned to Brown.

Brown has not been accused of wrongdoing, and apparently won’t be.  He sent his dog to the kennel for breeding in February.

Brown’s lawyer argued that Brown is a victim, and that it was important that the young dogs be released to Brown sooner rather than later.

“It’s a lot easier to sell 8-week-old puppies than it is to sell eight-month-old puppies,” attorney Sheila Kessler said in court.
Again, there’s no evidence or allegation Brown did anything wrong.  It appears that he simply picked the wrong kennel.
