Alleged fighting dogs can't be euthanized

The Spokane County Regional Animal Protective Services (SCRAP) shelter is full and has to euthanize some dogs that potentially could be adopted. Instead, managers would prefer to euthanize 8 dogs that were seized from an alleged dog fighting operation in April. Spokane County Superior Court Judge Ellen Clark ruled today that the shelter must keep the (alleged) fighting dogs alive so that they can be available to the defense, e.g., for behavioral tests. Alleged fighting dogs can't be euthanized, Spokesman Review, July 27, 2007 [that's the date on the web page, but can it be right? isn't today the 26th?]
