Mansfield Dog Ordered To Be Put Down

Mansfield selectmen have voted to euthanize a dog that mauled a 6-year-old boy in town, an attack that required 400 stitches.

The board after hearing the recommendation of the animal control officer voted 3-2 Wednesday night to have the 6-year-old pointer-hound mix put down. The dog’s owners say they will appeal the decision in court. The victim, Christian Herbert, was bitten on the face by the dog on Jan. 3 while the owner’s teenage daughter was babysitting him.

The boy’s mother, Dawn Herbert-Miller, said the experience has not only caused physical scars but lasting emotional ones. She says he calls himself ‘ugly’. The selectmen who voted against euthanization suggested sending the dog to a behavior training facility.
