Mansfield 'Death Row Dog' Attacks Again

MANSFIELD (CBS) - Milo, the dog on death row for attacking a Mansfield boy, has attacked again.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030's Karen Twomey reports


Mansfield Police Chief Arthur O'Neill confirmed to WBZ-TV that Milo attacked a 16-year-old girl on West Street Saturday night.

The teen, who is the sister of the dog's owner, was taken to Hasbro Children's Hospital. The extent of her injuries is unknown.

"She will be okay," said Michael Bailey, the girl's father. "As far as the dog goes? No comment."

The attack is Milo's second, after attacking a 6-year-old boy in January.

"It was just horrible. I can't believe this has happened again," said Dawn Hebert-Miller, first victim's mother. "It's exactly what we were trying to prevent."

Last Wednesday, the Board of Selectman voted 3-2 in favor of euthanizing Milo, a basset hound pointer mix, after the initial attack required Christian Hebert-Miller to get surgery and 400 stitches.

The family planned to appeal the vote in district court.  They have until March 9 to do so.

The dog is in the custody of animal control.
