A pro­vin­cial court judge has given the go ahead for a danger­ous dog to be put down.

Judge Cas­san­dra Mal­fair signed an or­der last week that Kilo, a Dober­man-Healer cross owned by Bryna Wiley, be eu­th­a­nized in a hu­mane man­ner by a li­censed vet­eri­nar­ian.

In Au­gust 2016, the dog burst out of its 1200-block Cud­die Cres­cent home and charged a toy poo­dle that had been liv­ing across the street, pick­ing it up and shak­ing it, the court heard dur­ing a trial.

A man forced Kilo to re­lease the much smaller dog but it was too late. It suf­fered a bro­ken back and within an hour of the in­ci­dent was put down at a doc­tor’s of­fice.

A few days later, the dog’s owner found an un- signed note on the wind­shield of her car that started with a com­ment that “ratz” de­serve to die.

Wiley, mean­while, had agreed to turn Kilo over to the city’s an­i­mal con­trol depart­ment and then launched the court ac­tion to pre­vent him be­ing eu­th­a­nized.

Kilo was the source of two other com­plaints to an­i­mal con­trol of­fi­cers be­fore the in­ci­dent.
