WSBeat side note: Myers Way dog linked to Shorewood attack

Side note to the first item in Megan Sheppard‘s latest WSBeat police-report roundup, published here early today: We just confirmed that the dog found in the Myers Way “woods” with its owner is the same one that was being sought in connection with a much-reported attack in Shorewood that injured a dog and its owner, as first reported on the Shorewood on the Sound Facebook group page. The man found with the dog off Myers Way is in jail because of warrants, as noted in the WSBeat report; King County spokesperson Cameron Satterfield tells WSB that the dog is in the county facility in Kent and will remain there while its owner works through his legal problems – Seattle Animal Shelter took the dog on Saturday, and then turned it over to the county. The owner has been cited, Satterfield says, including a “removal order” served to him in jail – if he reclaims the dog, it cannot be kept anywhere in King County. WSB Forums members discussing this case had reported often seeing the dog and owner at Westwood Village.

    Does anyone have a description of the dog?

    Poor dog. At least he is safe for the meantime.

    Oh no is this the black lab that has to sit in the rain for hours while the owner stands at the entrance of the Target parking lot asking for money?

      One of the two animal-control officers to whom I spoke believed it was a “pit bull” and that is how it was described in all the Shorewood reports.

    Glad they were caught.

Sorry, comment time is over.
