KANSAS CITY,  Mo. — A source with Kansas City Animal Control tells FOX 4 that the cane corso who was described as a ‘dangerous dog’ after it viciously attacked three people has been seized and euthanized.

Animal control officers had been desperately wanting to get their hands on the dog after it was mistakenly released to its owner after it was taken in for biting  19-year-old Victoria Eve and her boyfriend while they were walking on Nov. 6, and then attacking its owner’s 54-year-old father on Nov.13.

When FOX 4 covered the story two weeks ago, a man living with the dog’s owner said relatives had “shot and killed the dog” following the attacks, but a spokesperson with Kansas City Animal Control says on Tuesday afternoon they received a phone call from someone who said the dog was at an apartment near Harrison Parkway and Gillham Road.

According to the spokesperson, animal control officers went to the apartment and found the dog but no one else at the apartment.

The animal control officers took the dog to the shelter, and on Wednesday the dog was euthanized after its owner signed it over to the shelter.
