The city of Casper, Wyoming, is trying to order the death of a family’s dog. The dog, named King, was involved in an incident in August which was troubling, but not (to most dog lovers) enough to justify his death.
First, to explain the troubling situation…King and two other dogs escaped from his home when a woman walked by with her child and a dog. The dogs ran to the woman, who panicked. As described by a Change.org petition, the woman screamed, picked up her dog, and began kicking at the three dogs. One of the dogs, a female, got into a “tussle” with the Corgi. However, the smaller dog was only minorly injured and has since recovered completely.
Two of the dogs were allowed to go home, but King, who did not attack the smaller dog, has been turned over to the Metro animal shelter and the city wants him to be euthanized because of his behavior on the day of the incident. What was the behavior? King was circling the woman and her dog – conduct, according to one judge, indicative of “predatory” behavior.
Video taken of King shows a dog who is happy and adoring of his people – a dog, who given the proper training and safety protocols at home, should be given the opportunity to live.
