Los Alamos Animal Control Officers located and seized two dogs Tuesday that are suspected of killing a smaller dog, according to the Los Alamos Police Department.
The owner of two shepherd-type dogs has been cited, according to LAPD Commander Preston Ballew. The attack happened March 29 on Acoma Lane.
“Charges have been filed through the Los Alamos Magistrate Court,” Ballew said Wednesday.
The owner, Leslie Sherman, was cited with three counts; two are dangerous dog acts, one for each dog, and the third count is a petition to court for the seizure of the dogs, according to the police report.
Los Alamos Dispatch received a call at 1:17 p.m. March 29 about a possible dog attack, so Los Alamos County Police Corporal Sheldon Simpson and Senior PSA Officer Robert Aragon went to the residence to investigate the reported dog attack, according to the report.
“…A witness observed (two) large dogs, one brown and the other black, come into the yard where a smaller dog was,” according to Ballew. “The (two) large dogs killed the smaller dog and left the area.”
