The case is from McCune, Kan., which we've written about before. Mayor Don Call has entered pleas of innocent in the February incident, the Joplin Globe reports. He says he shot the two dogs after receiving reports they had been chasing a child. Snip:
Crawford County Attorney Michael Gayoso said felony charges were filed because he believes the dogs were killed maliciously.
McCune’s dog ordinance, adopted in 2006, states that dogs running at large are subject to impoundment, and that no dogs may be “disposed of until after a minimum of three business days of custody.”
