Grunnah said on Jan. 4 that the county's ruling against the dogs amounted to a death sentence for them. She will have them destroyed unless she wins an appeal, she said, because their "dangerous" classification would cost her the insurance she needs to run her breeding business.
It sounds like the accused dogs' owner is trying to blackmail the court and public opinion by threatening to kill the dog(s) if she loses her appeals. I personally think that dog-aggression is as serious as human-aggression (if nothing else, people get hurt defending their pets) and that it's a valid reason to euthanize a dog. That said, I doubt she means it and I'm not very sympathetic if she does. She let three massive dogs get out of control and kill another domestic animal, which brought her and her valuable show animals under the eye of the law, which is going to destroy their value as breeding animals, and hurt her financially with insurance costs. I think she's getting a just punishment.
