A Buffalo man is headed to prison for his role in a dog fighting operation.

A judge sentenced 35-year-old Joshua Mack Monday to 1-3 years in state prison for Prohibition of Animal Fighting.

A search warrant was executed in March at Mack's home on Roma Avenue in Buffalo. During the search, seven dogs and one puppy were found with injuries that are consistent with dog fighting.

The animals were rescued and brought to the SPCA's on-site infirmary on Harlem Road in West Seneca for immediate treatment.
