Two dogs that attacked and injured a 9-year-old girl in Eagle Mountain have been returned to their owners.
A spokesman for the Utah County Sheriff’s Office said having the dogs killed “was something we were considering,” but acted on the advice of the Utah County Attorney’s Office.
“There was a lot of sentiment in the community that it might be best if the dogs were put down,” said Sgt. Spencer Cannon. “But we have to be on sound legal footing.”
