Order given to euthanize dangerous dog
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.
