Mansfield officials to decide dog’s fate

Nobody knows what prompted Milo, a 3-year-old pointer-hound mix, to bite a young Mansfield boy on Jan. 3, but what is certain is that the boy required more than 400 stitches to repair the wound.

Dawn Herbert-Miller, the mother of 6-year-old Christian, would like the dog to be euthanized and has petitioned Mansfield selectmen to order Milo’s owners to put him down. The board is preparing to rule on the case after it hears witness testimony Wednesday, said Olivier Kozlowski, chairman of the Board of Selectmen.
