A Victoria County judge signed a euthanization order Thursday for a Doberman that bit a girl’s face despite pleas from the owner and the girl herself.
That bite left two deep gashes on both sides of the girl’s mouth. The wounds required about 20 stitches to seal. The girl’s name was not released.
“That’s going to be a scar that you are going to live with for the rest of your life ... It will never go away,” said Justice of the Peace Mary Ann Rivera, adding, “That’s a scar on your face that didn’t need to be there.”
