The owner has signed an owner release for "Girl," but both dogs are currently in the custody of SCRAPS. "Girl" will be put to sleep, and "Demon" will be returned after a 10 day waiting period. 

The owner, 45-year-old Kathy Southern, was also served with criminal misdemeanor charges for having a dog with vicious propensities and civil infractions for a dog at large, a dog with aggressive threatening behavior and a dog with no license.
