California Dog Mauling Homicide Case Reaches State High Court

The California Supreme Court is set to consider whether an intermediate appellate court properly reinstated a second degree murder conviction in the California pit bull presa canario (NB: Thank you, Rachel). mauling/murder case from a few years back. I remember this case when it was tried. Watched most of it on Court Tv. Cheered when the convictions came in, and was appalled when the trial judge took matter into his own hands. These are reprehensible defendants. Sometimes bad facts make bad lad law. The California Supremes must now determine whether this is one of those cases.

    It was not a pit bull. It was, as the article states, a presa canario. But yes, I agree they are reprehensible defendants.

    You’re right, and I knew that. Of course, that they were pure bred presa canario’s makes them more culpable, I’d say.
