Garner, NC (WNCN) – Garner police announced on Monday that two dogs that killed their children and injured their mothers were euthanized and not returned to their owners.
April 27, Jayden Henderson and her mother Attacked by two pitbulls, Blitzen and Athena, at Lone Drive’s house.
Jayden was killed in the attack and his mother was seriously injured.
The dog was confiscated and taken to an animal shelter in Wake County.
Last week, dog owners applied for a permit for dangerous animals that would allow them to go home.
But Garner’s police chief said it wouldn’t happen.
“I believe dogs are too dangerous to return to their owners,” said Chief Jobins. “After reviewing all the information, the attack appeared to have occurred without warning or provocation.
Allowing dogs to be released would create a substantial and unnecessary danger to the public. “
Owners can appeal the decision to a judge in a higher court, Mr. Binz said.
Dogs will remain in animal shelters for up to 60 days after being confiscated. At that point, they are euthanized.
Jayden and her mom were allegedly helping to take care of the two pitbulls while their owners were away from town. The attack took place in the dog’s backyard.
