Psychics Predict: Euthanization
Orlando, FL - No one came forward to claim the pit bull that tangled with Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer over the weekend -- unsurprising. The pit bull didn't have a collar or identification chip -- unsurprising. Animal Services is holding the pit bull at its animal shelter isolated from other dogs -- unsurprising. Because of its aggressiveness, the pit bull is ineligible for adoption -- unsurprising.
Mayor Buddy Dyer interceded when the pit bull attacked a Jack Russell Terrier on his street -- unsurprising. The pit bull had clamped onto the terrier's neck and refused to let go -- unsurprising. But Dyer somehow managed to break the two apart -- now that's surprising. The terrier was treated for its injuries and returned home Monday -- that's also surprising, usually these pets are killed.
If the pit bull owner ever does show up, the dog still may not be released. Animal Services would launch an investigation to determine whether the pit bull meets the legal definition of a "dangerous dog." Once a dog is labeled dangerous, it becomes subject to strict handling guidelines, including mandatory spay/neuter and muzzling when off-property.
