TELLURIDE, Colo. (AP) — Authorities in southwestern Colorado say they have discovered a suspected home hash oil operation after responding to a dog bite call.

San Miguel County Sheriff Bill Masters says a deputy went to a home outside Telluride Tuesday after a man was bit in the crotch by a pit bull. He said the deputy saw butane bottles, several trays of suspected hash oil and some other possibly hazardous materials.

Deputies and firefighters requested a search warrant to re-enter the home. It's uncertain whether any charges could be filed since authorities are divided over whether the process is illegal or not.

The man was bleeding heavily and taken to the hospital. His condition isn't known.
