Man steals dog from SLO kennel to stop euthanasia
November 13, 2015
A homeless man broke into San Luis Obispo County Animal Services and retrieved his pit bull mix the night before the dog was scheduled to be euthanized, according to the county sheriff’s office.
In October, a judge ruled the pit bull belonging to Logan Timothy Wilson Stoffle, 24, was a danger to society and must be euthanized. The black and brown colored pit bull mix named Sid twice attacked and bit people, causing them to go to the hospital for treatment.
The judge scheduled the euthanasia for Wednesday. Overnight on Tuesday, Stoffle burglarized the animal services center in San Luis Obispo, a sheriff’s office press release states.
At the time, the dog was being quarantined at the Animal Services Center kennel.
Authorities are now requesting that anyone who sees Stoffle and his dog call the sheriff’s office at 781-4550. Doing so will prevent others from being harmed by the dog, the news release states.
Stoffle frequents the Atascadero area, according to the sheriff’s office.
