VICIOUS DOG: Family Appeals WDM Decision
The owners of a West Des Moines pit bull set to be euthanized are appealing that decision.
The dog, Killer, is accused of biting at least three people in nine months and was given a death sentence last week by the West Des Moines City Council.
Killer’s owners filed their appeal on Monday.
Their case will be represented in district court by attorneys from The Lexus Project, a pro-bono legal organization in New York City that has made a name for itself by successfully defending so-called vicious dogs.
