According to the Sheriff's Office, the killings of the two animals were justified after the dogs went onto someone's property and went after children, adults and another family's pet.

Investigators said adults fought off the dogs with yard tools before one of the adults shot and killed the dogs. The dogs' bodies were found on the side of Wint Ruis Road.
