Officials are holding an Old English bulldog that allegedly killed one miniature horse and injured another Saturday afternoon in Edgartown on Martha’s Vineyard. Animal control officer Barbara Prada said a tip led officials Sunday to Edgartown resident Adam Mahoney, the owner of Mugsy the bulldog, who admitted that the dog came home Saturday covered in blood and sporting scrapes and scratches after being on the loose. Animal control officials are holding the 3-year-old bulldog for 10 days as part of a state law mandating a quarantine in case of rabies. Prada said she urged the owner to put the dog down.
