The City of Calgary has applied to the courts to have three dogs involved in a fatal attack in June humanely euthanized.

On June 5, emergency units were called to a home in the 1500 block of 21 Avenue NW after reports of an 86-year-old woman being attacked by three dogs.

The woman was taken to the hospital by EMS in life-threatening condition but died a short time later.

The dogs were seized by peace officers after the incident. The dogs were held while the investigation was ongoing.

The City said Thursday afternoon that they’ve applied to the Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta under the Dangerous Dogs Act.

“The Dangerous Dogs Act application deals only with the disposition of the dogs and requests that the Court order the dogs involved in the incident to be humanely euthanized,” a City statement read.

According to a Calgary police release at the time, the three dogs are believed to be a North American Pitbull terrier mix, a North American Staffordshire mix and an American Pitbull.

The Calgary Police Service and Calgary Community Standards are continuing to investigate the incidents.

They said more information will be released when those are complete.
