BEND, Ore. (AP) – Three Siberian huskies will be euthanized for attacking alpacas on a central Oregon farm.
The Bend Bulletin reports the owners of the alpacas and the three dogs were both tearful during a Deschutes County Dog Control Board meeting Thursday. Officials decided Tasha, Buddy and Wolfers had to be put down over fears they may attack again and were unsuitable for adoption.
Dog owner Norman Jensen was fined $1,000, which he can later appeal.
Two of Michelle Alexander’s alpaca’s were killed during the attack, and two others were later put down due to their injuries. She says a veterinarian is monitoring a pregnant alpaca that was also injured by the dogs.
