Victoria pit bull won't be destroyed if new owner found

A pit bull deemed dangerous won't be destroyed by court order if a new owner can be found by the middle of the month.

Last month, Victoria provincial court Judge Judith Kay declared Tyson, a five-year-old pit bull owned by Justin Lutz, a dangerous dog under the community charter, after he bit at least three people.

Kay accepted a report from veterinarian Dr. Shelley Breadner that Tyson is trainable, ruling the animal doesn't have to be destroyed if by Nov. 15 an owner can be found who will be able to control the pit bull. The new owner must keep Tyson on a short leash, muzzle him outside the home and never leave him outside unattended. He can be kept in a secure fenced and locked yard, but only in the presence of his owner.
