Dog killed in Airdrie attack, Mounties say owner has given up animal to be put d

Both parties are to blame in a dog attack incident in Airdrie that left one pooch dead and another set to be put down, according to the city’s municipal enforcement files.

Mounties were sent to Channelside Rd. in Airdrie before 9 p.m. on Saturday following several frantic calls coming in to 911 in short order about one dog mauling another.

According to RCMP, an unleashed poodle-type dog left its yard to approach a leashed pitbull-type dog being walked along the residential street by its owner.

The pitbull attacked the poodle — getting free from its leash and owner long enough to kill the smaller dog.

Following the incident, the pitbull’s owner willingly gave the dog over to Airdrie bylaw and animal services, who have since taken over on the investigation from the local RCMP.

RCMP Sgt. Jeff Campbell said the latest update to bylaw and animal services’ file on the incident states neither dog owner will be charged as both were deemed to have some level of responsibility for the deadly occurrence.

Campbell also said, in addition to handing the pitbull over, its owner has also signed off to have it put down, which is scheduled to take place on Tuesday.

Campbell said according to the municipal enforcement file, the pitbull has been involved in prior incidents.
