The North Adams Public Safety Committee on voted to euthanize two dogs deemed to be dangers to the community. A third dog has been given a chance for re-homing, if possible.
The reluctant vote came after a two-hour hearing at which testimony was taken about the dogs' general aggressive actions and attacks on visitors at the owners' home on Northern Lights Avenue.
Three dogs from the same family were the subject of the hearing to determine whether they were dangerous and, if so, what would be their disposition. The committee was assisted by attorney Gregg Corbo of KP Law, the city solicitor.
Corbo summed up the testimony given on Pretty Boy, Piglet and Crook that included attacks on people who had been invited to enter the family's home. There were at least three incidents, two in February and one in June.
