Attacking dogs euthanized

May 3, 2011

Former NASCAR driver Jeremy Mayfield's five dogs were euthanized after attacking a postal worker.

The labrador and pit bull mix dogs were euthanized April 28, which was a week after the incident. Catawba County Animal Services Manager Jay Blatche said Mayfield authorized the death of the five dogs.

Mary Bolton, 32, a postal worker for the Catawba Post Office, was delivering a package April 21 to the front door of Mayfield's residence, 6397 Hudson Chapel Road in Catawba. Catawba Fire Chief Don Robinson previously told The O-N-E that as Bolton approached the home, she was attacked by one dog, then four others also attacked her. Bolton was taken to Catawba Valley Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

Catawba Interim Police Chief M. Nash said Monday he spoke to Bolton a week ago, and she is "healing and taking care of her wounds."

Nash said no charges are filed in the incident, but the case's paperwork was submitted to the District Attorney's Office for review.

... at least the District Attorney, FINALLY, decided to seek the death peanlty, and actually won it! WOW!
Instead of using the word "euthanized" lets start using "Bin Ladened" or even better "SEALED!"
I sure hope we didn't kill any innocent dawgs, I mean are we sure due process was carried out? Were all the dogs guilty! I mean lets appliy N.C.'s racial justice act to dogs as well. Everybody knows Labs are a Majority preferred dog and Pit Bulls, well you know. As for Chihuahuas, well every body knows the deal there (illegals I bet!) and Chinese Hairless dogs, when they are not serving up your fried rice they are dealing heroin!
