Killer Dog Euthanized for Attack on Poodle
One of two dogs that attacked and killed an elderly widow's poodle has been euthanized and its owner is facing hefty fines, after bylaw officers used tips from Sun readers to track down the offending animals.
Marilyn Johnston was walking her miniature poodle, Molly when two large dogs suddenly attacked from behind, with one grabbing Molly in its jaws and shaking her violently. Officers went door-to-door in the southeast neighbourhood of Fairview and found the dogs, a Blue Heeler Mix and a Rottweiller mix.
The owner has a number of charges, including the standard $1,000 fine given when a dog attacks or kills another dog. Because the owner was co-operative, the fines could be reduced.
