Animal Control responded and took control of the dog. He is being held at the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region Pueblo, but is being held under court hold.

Two of the men appeared to be happy with the officers and that EMS was on the scene, the other man was not and was less than cooperative.

Turns out he has two active arrest warrants and will be booked into PCDC after treatment of his injuries at the hospital.

A petition has been started to bring awareness to the dog’s future situation. According to the petition, the dog goes by “Kane,” and is well known around the neighborhood where the incident took place.
