Judge hands death penalty to two dogs

July 30, 2004 at 3:36 PM   |   Comments

UPPER DARBY, Pa., July 30 (UPI) -- A Pennsylvania judge has imposed the death penalty on two cute, cuddly dogs whose bite, he says, is worse than their bark.

The judge ruled the dogs are vicious after they bit three people, two of them children, in as many months and he ordered them to be put to sleep, WCAU-TV said.

Perry and Bastille are Bichon Frise dogs who belong to Christine Aslanides and her daughter Anna in Upper Darby, Pa.

"(The judge) wants to kill the dogs. He can kill us, me and my daughter together. He can kill us, too," Christine Aslanides said.

They've hired an attorney to fight the edict.
