WJLA: Dogs From Attack Euthanized
WJLA reports that the two dogs who targeted three children on Queen Street Friday night have been euthanized. The dogs originally approached a group of three children (ranging in age from 10-13 years), and chased two of the children onto the roof of a nearby car. A man ran up to the dogs (who continued to bark and lunge at the children) with a knife and engaged them. They bit him about the arms and hands. Neighbors managed to fight the dogs off before they could maul the man further.
An officer in PG County responded to a report, and was approached by the dogs in a threatening manner. He shot one of the dogs (one was already severely injured) and injured it. One of the dogs jumped into the open car door of the officer's cruiser. Both dogs were subdued, and later euthanized. It was not until later that the officer recognized the dogs in the video of the Trinidad attack. Here's hoping the owner(s) face prosecution.
