Life-or-Death Hearing For Chicken-Killing Dog

TOLLAND, Conn. (AP) — A Siberian Husky is headed to a Connecticut court for a life-or-death hearing.

The Hartford Courant reports the dog, named “Luna,” will be the subject of a hearing at Rockville Superior Court Thursday after an animal rights group challenged an order by Tolland’s animal control officer to euthanize her.

Luna twice killed neighborhood chickens, prompting the animal control officer to tell owner Paul Doyle in June to fortify his invisible fence. Doyle said Luna would resist confinement and he did not did not build an enclosure.

After a second attack that killed a neighbor’s chickens, Tolland’s animal control officer ordered that Luna be euthanized.

An animal rights group wants a judge to block the order.

The owner of the chickens that Luna killed said he would be happy if Luna finds a new home out of state.
