Animal Control Euthanized This Dog Without The Family’s Permission

When Erin Bulfin’s rescue dog Daisy bit her young daughter, she did the responsible thing and filed a report with animal control. The child’s injury was minor and came about when Daisy became protective of a toy.

While most dogs quarantine at home after a bite incident, Bulfin says her local animal control insisted on taking Daisy into their facility. Instead of quarantining the dog, they euthanized her less than one hour after Bulfin dropped her off.
