Dogs get death — Four dogs have been given a death sentence for attacking an Oregon girl in June. Three Klamath County commissioners voted unanimously that it was in the public interest to euthanize the animals. Vincent Berry owns the English mastiffs and has 10 days to appeal the decision to circuit court. His sister says they will take that step. The dogs attacked Berry’s neighbor, Alyssa Stevens. The 10-year-old suffered a torn scalp, punctured lung and broken ribs, and spent several weeks in a Portland hospital.
