      Dog euthanized after attacking 3-year-old

      According to the Saginaw County Animal Care Center, the dog that attacked a 3-year-old on March 11 has been "humanely euthanized."

      The dog mauled the young girl in Buena Vista Township.

      She continues to recover.

      After the attack, the SCACC quarantined the animal.

      Officials at the center say the animal has since been euthanized.

      Saginaw County Commissioners will consider a "dangerous dog policy" later this month.

      If enacted, the policy will make sure Animal Control documents dangerous dog complaints through Saginaw County courts.

      Now, commissioners have added all dangerous animals to this policy.

      If a dog or any animal for that matter is deemed dangerous, animal control will make sure that animal is tagged before it's released back to its owner.

      If that dog or animal attacks again, the owner will have to appear before a judge and explain why the animal should not be put down.
