West Des Moines’ city council will discuss how to handle a hearing on a vicious dog at its meeting Monday night.
Late last year animal control officer deemed a pit bull-boxer mix from the Valley Junction area as vicious. Officials say it bit four people and all the bites were unprovoked.
The family is appealing the decision in hopes of getting their dog, named Killer, back. The dog is currently being quarantined at the West Des Moines Animal Control facility.
The family that owns the dog is expected to attend a hearing in front of the city council on January 21st.
If the family’s appeal is unsuccessful the dog will be euthanized.
