Why was the second dog euthanized? Was he/she participating in the attack as well? Or just guily by association?

Jen, the press release was extremely limited. All it said was that two of the dogs were euthanized based on a statement from the victim. The initial story only cited one dog as responsible for the attack, though.

Were they off lead, and what about the owner of these dogs?
