A pit bull involved in an attack last month in South Vancouver has been put down.
John Gray with Animal Services for the City of Vancouver says the animal was put down Thursday.
“The file was under investigation with one of our officers. But in the interim the owners of the pit bull have decided to euthanize their dog.”
And the unnamed owners could be punished.
“Our investigation here at our area has actually concluded. We’ve sent that information up to city prosecutor. The process is that they will approve charges and file those with the court system and there will be a date set for the dog owners to appear in court.”
CKNW asked if the city could comment on what charges could be.
“Not at this point but there will be charges forthcoming.”
The incident happened near 56th Avenue and Fraser Street.
Two people were attacked but one person walked away, the other was taken to hospital.
Gray says the city can’t comment on the extent of their injuries.
