Dog decision delayed

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

A decision was scheduled for Oct. 18 at 2 p.m. at the Courtenay courthouse, but has been put over to a future date, which has not yet been determined.

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.

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