Judge orders vicious dog to be put down after pet dog killed in The Village


THE VILLAGE — A judge has ordered that a vicious dog should be put down after it attacked and killed a woman's pet dog in August.

A dog named Albert, owned by resident Leslie Spears, was killed Aug. 29 when a neighboring dog got out of a fence and attacked Albert. Spears took Albert to a veterinarian and has a $4,000 bill for surgery, but Albert didn't survive.

At a hearing in municipal court Thursday in The Village, Judge Daniel White ordered the vicious dog be put down. A city court clerk said the owner of the dog, Brandon Stempf, who lives on Sunnymeade Avenue, has 10 days to appeal the decision in Oklahoma County District Court.

Spears said Friday she is satisfied that the vicious dog will not be able to hurt other pets or people although the decision "won't bring Albert back."
