A Waddy resident has come forward to claim the dog confiscated last week in connection with some animal attacks.
However, officials at the Shelby County Animal Shelter refuse to release her dog, the owner said.
“They say they won’t let me have him until they are sure he is not the dog they’re looking for,” said Brenda Tillett of Waddy.
The pit bull is a suspect in animal mutilations that killed several animals in late November and early December and ripped off a cow’s ears as recently as Jan. 6.
