Former Mayor's Dogs To Be Euthanized After One Killed Her Husband

Posted: Updated:

All of the dogs belonging to former Bullhead City, Arizona mayor Diane Vick will be euthanized after one killed her husband.

Vick was injured and her husband Tom killed after the couple tried to break up a fight between two of their dogs, a boxer and a cocker spaniel. The Arizona Republic reports the couple's other four dogs eventually joined in the fight.

The couple's cocker spaniel died from injuries sustained in the fight. Police said the couple's five remaining dogs were put in a 10-day quarantine by animal control, where the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports they'll be monitored for signs of rabies.

According to the AP, those dogs will be euthanized according to a request from the Vick family.
