After enjoying its "No Kill" status for nearly four months, the Shelby County Animal Shelter lost that distinction this past weekend.
James Collins, director of the shelter, said seven dogs were euthanized because they were aggressive.
The shelter will house aggressive animals if there is space, but this weekend, there wasn't.
One of the euthanatized dogs, ironically named "Lucky," was aggressive to other dogs and to cats but not to people, Collins said.
Five other dogs were the same, and one dog was aggressive to everyone.
