TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - The owner of a no-kill rescue organization has been found guilty of violating Topeka’s dangerous dogs ordinance after a German shepherd fatally mauled a teacup poodle at this year’s St. Patrick’s Day parade.

The Topeka Capital-Journal (https://bit.ly/YIZREa ) reports Jan Price, leader of Saving Death Row Dogs, was fined $250 and ordered to pay $500 in restitution to the poodle’s owners.

Judge Vic Miller also ordered the release of a dog that has been kept in custody since the attack because the city couldn’t convince him it was the dog that killed the poodle. If he had been sure the dog was the attacker, it would have been put down.

Miller said he thought the dog was worth more than the $500 its owners had requested.
