There was a huge outpouring of support for a dog deemed dangerous by the Ware Police Chief. Tuesday night the owner and town officials came to an agreement that will save Dino.
Close to one hundred people filled the Ware Board of Selectmen’s meeting as the board considered whether a restaurant owner’s dog was vicious and dangerous. Dino has bitten as many as twelve people on his owner’s property, despite graphic signs warning people.
Ware Police Chief Dennis Healy told 22News, “My personal belief is that a dog that has bitten as many as twelve people is a vicious dangerous dog.” However, Dino’s supporters say it’s not that simple; the people getting bitten are trespassing on Steve Kolenovic’s property, and ignoring the signs saying “Beware of the Guard Dog.”
Phil McManus of Ware said, “A dog stops a guy from breaking onto property and stealing something. ‘Let’s kill the dog?’ That’s not what this town should be like.”
