Selectmen decide fate of dog deemed ‘dangerous’

June 24th, 2015

Shrewsbury – The fate of “Casey,” a black German shepherd, hung in the balance at the June 23 Shrewsbury Board of Selectmen meeting. The dog, owned by Seamus Shanley, 29 Summer St., had been accused by several neighbors as being dangerous.

The June 23 hearing had been called because of a written complaint from the Richardson family, 17 Summer St., who said their small, elderly, disabled Bichon dog died as a result of Casey’s unprovoked attack on it in May 2015. The owners told the board that “Cocoa” had to be euthanized at Tufts Veterinary Clinic shortly after the attack because of its injuries.
