Dangerous dog court works fairly similar to regular human court. Victims are allowed to state their case. They are called complainants. Dog owners are given a chance to defend their dog. Wednesday evening there was only one case and it involved a 2 year old neutered husky named Maxie who has a knack for getting loose and terrorizing the complainant, Dana Bland and her cats at her Greenville Loop Road home. Bland said, "He seems to be a cat killer, I became fearful for my animals, I finally cornered him and when I did he lunged on me, but when he jumped on me he was covered in dog poop and he smelled the worst of any dog I've seen in my life." Qi Ao owns the husky that's been deemed dangerous. "He run away twice. Huskies tend to run away, it's part of their nature, and sometimes he does run onto neighbor's property," said Ao. As far as being dirty, Qi Ao said that's not the case. "He's not covered in poo," said Ao. After listening to both parties 3 volunteer animal control committee members render their decision... In short, Qi Ao has to put a top on Maxie's kennel. He's hesitant, but it's a requirement for a dog that's been declared dangerous. As for Dana Bland, she's not convinced a kennel top is the answer. "If this dog comes into my yard again, and he threatens me like he did the last two times and he tries to hurt my pet, we're not going to have to worry about being in this office," said Bland.
