HARTFORD — Peaceful protests were held Monday for two dogs on death row in Hamden.
According to police, the dogs went after a 6-year-old girl and then bit the girl’s grandmother when she stepped in to save her.
That’s when neighbors hit the dogs with a baseball bat until they let go.
But a Facebook page in support of the dogs tells a different story.
The page claims the dogs got out of their gate, ran down the street, and then were immediately surrounded by a crowd of people who began beating them.
The dogs’ owner, Kim Miller, is appealing their death sentence.
This story has grabbed the attention of thousands of people.
