Pit bull wrongly blamed for killing livestock set free
Oct. 19, 2017
CENTRALIA, Wash. (AP) — A pit bull named Hank that was wrongfully blamed for killing livestock last year is now free.
KIRO-TV reports that a Thurston County judge on Wednesday voided a Lewis County euthanasia order and ordered that Hank be released to his adoptive Centralia, Washington family.
Even though witnesses said the pit bull that killed the livestock was not Hank, a Lewis County judge ruled Hank a dangerous dog and directed he be put down.
Hank's owners have been fighting in court for five months and finally won on Wednesday.
Owner Jann Propp-Estimo said: "It feels wonderful! It's like I can't tell you how great it is!"
The family said they planned to spoil Hank.
