Wausau judge orders pit bull to be put down following June attack

WAUSAU, WI (WTAQ) - A judge in Wausau has ordered a pit bull to be euthanized after it ran out of a house in June, attacked a pedestrian, and killed her Chihuahua.

The judge ruled that the dog was vicious, and owner must pay the cost of putting it down. The dog's owner was also cited for not having a dog license, vaccinations, or a leash for the pit bull.

56-year-old Cindy Ryder was walking her Chihuahua in downtown Wausau on June 19th when the attack occurred. Ryder had several bite wounds, cuts, and punctures.

Police at the time told the pit bull's owner to euthanize it, or move it out of Wausau.
