Four pit bulls found neglected have been euthanized

Four pit bull dogs that were badly neglected in Odessa have been euthanized by animal control.   

On July 6, NewsWest 9 brought you the story about these dogs being seized by Odessa animal control officials.

The owners had left them unattended for several weeks at a house on the corner of Wedgewood and Oakwood.

At a hearing this week, Odessa animal control was given custody of the pit bulls.

Unfortunately, because the breed is considered not adoptable, all four animals had to be put to sleep.

Officials will file criminal charges when the appointed caretaker is found.
