EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - A hearings officer in Oregon has decided not to proceed with euthanizing a pit bull named Kron, that bit the muzzle of a neighbor’s horse.

The Daily Courier reported (https://bit.ly/2nNwXVb ) Thursday that Kron’s death sentence has been commuted after a two-hour court hearing.

The attack happened early March when Kron got out of a yard and chased the horse, named Hummer.

Hummer’s owner then shot Kron to get him away. The shooting injuries placed Kron in serious condition, but he survived.

Instead of a death sentence, Kron has been banished to his owner’s new home away from where Hummer had been bitten.



The officer also imposed a $250 penalty and ordered another $530 in boarding fees to be paid.
