Fate of impounded Black Creek dogs will be known Oct. 18

The fate of two young Newfoundland dogs will be decided in mid-October, following the conclusion of a hearing for an application to destroy the dogs brought forth by the Comox Valley Regional District in July.

Black Creek couple Edith and Jacques Manseau's two dogs — Chum and Champ — are being held at the Comox Valley SPCA following seizure spurred from a Jan. 5 complaint of a vicious dog attack.

A decision is scheduled for Oct. 18 at 2 p.m. at the Courtenay courthouse.

A three-day hearing, which began in March, heard from various witnesses, including neighbours, former tenants and the regional district's animal control officer.
