Dogs' fate to be announced Wednesday

A Courtenay judge has three options Jan. 16 to decide the fate of two Newfoundland dogs following an application to destroy them brought forth by the Comox Valley Regional District.

A decision is due at 2 p.m at the Courtenay courthouse.

Black Creek couple Edith and Jacques Manseau's two dogs — Chum and Champ — were being held at the Comox Valley SPCA following seizure spurred from a Jan. 5, 2012 complaint of a vicious dog attack.

Lawyers presented the court with three options — the court could find the dogs not dangerous and they could be returned to Jacques Manseau (Edith Manseau passed away in late October); it could find the dogs dangerous and order them euthanized; or they could be found dangerous and court could provide a conditional order that allows the dogs to live with conditions ordered by the court.

The dogs have been residing with Comox residents John and Emma White during a temporary release.
