STATEN ISLAND NY - A PIT BULL NAMED CAESAR TO GET DEATH PENALTY FOR KILLING 2 DOGS AND A CAT AND ATTACKING NEIGHBORS
They came to bury Caesar.
A state Supreme Court judge rendered unto Caesar a ruling that amounts to death penalty for the 80-pound Staten Island pit bull mix that killed two dogs and a cat and turned his wrath on a couple of neighbors.
The last notch on Caesar’s leash came when he bolted from his Donley Ave. backyard in May and tore into a helpless Chihuahua named Charlie like he was a love seat throw pillow.
Injured in the May attack was the dog’s traumatized owner, Eugene Charles, 77, who sustained 16 deep puncture marks on his hands when he tried to pry Caesar’s mouth open.
After a series of hearings that determined Caesar was too violent to be returned to owners Kristina and Douglas Panattieri, the judge last week declined to uphold an appeal of a euthanization order.
A lawyer for the owners could not be reached for comment.
