Attack dogs euthanised by council

THE two female bull arab dogs that mauled to death a small dog in the backyard of an Urangan home last week have been destroyed by the Fraser Coast Regional Council.

The council issued a short statement yesterday to say the dogs had been euthanised.

The dogs were taken away by council officers after the deadly attack was reported by Urangan's Christie Palmer.

Ms Palmer told the investigating officers that when she returned home from dropping her daughter off at a local school she saw the dogs in her backyard standing over the lifeless body of their maltese shih-tzu.

“One of them put its mouth around the dead dog's neck,” she said at the time.

The small dog was owned by her five-year-old daughter, Amelia.

The attack prompted an amazing response from the public which will see the youngster receive a new dog in the coming weeks.

Concerns by the family that the dogs would be returned have now been alleviated by the council's actions.
