Two dogs who were responsible for the death of 29 cats at an Alabama animal shelter have been put down. As reported by ABC News, the dogs, who belonged to Kenneth Hamilton, were euthanized last week after Hamilton relinquished them.
The dogs had been picked up as strays before being taken to the Dothan Animal Shelter. During the night, they managed to force their way out of chain link fencing and proceeded to fatally maul the cats.
The dogs’ ability to break out of the enclosure they were in has been blamed on the age and condition of the shelter. Animal welfare advocates are pushing for a new shelter to be built, but funds have not yet been allocated towards the construction of a new facility.
