A DC man has been sentenced to prison for setting up an extensive dog fighting business and taking his dog, Cookie Monster, and his 7-year-old son to dog fighting in King George County, Virginia.

Odell Anderson Sr., 56, was sentenced to 18 months.

On April 3, 2016, Anderson’s son participated in the “two-card” fights in which the Cookie Monster brutally killed two other dogs.

According to court documents, Anderson began his brutal dog-fighting kennel, “MOB” or “Make of Break,” in 2013.

The organization continued dog fighting until Anderson was captured on June 1, 2016. That day, law enforcement executed a search warrant at his home on J Street in the Northeast.

Officials said he trained dogs and organized a training program several weeks before events. While organizing the match on April 3, he made it clear that the rules included “no open invitations” and “no walk-ins.”

Anderson’s lawyer claimed he was unaware of how serious his actions were.



Attendees came from as far away as New Jersey to watch and participate in dog fights that day.

Anderson Powe, a 46-year-old resident of Frederick, attended the event. He was sentenced to 18 months for his commitment.

“These defendants served as leaders, breeders, and trainers for a multi-year dog fighting operation,” said acting U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, Raj Parekh. “The violent and cruel act of dogfighting is a heinous form of animal cruelty. We must treat these animals with dignity and respect. ”

Two other men in connection with the April 3 fight include 47-year-old Carlos L. Harvey of King George and 46-year-old Chester Moody of Glenn Dale. Harvey pleaded guilty and will be convicted of his role on Nov. 5. Moody was sentenced to 12 months in August 2020.
