A dog attack leads to the death of another dog in Evansville

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

A dog died after allegedly being attacked by three other dogs in Evansville.

Leonilla Lacy says her neighbor's three dogs attacked her Jack Russell Terrier, Hootie, in her driveway late last week. 

She took Hootie to the vet after the attack. He was released after surgery but died the next day at home.

The owners of the three dogs say this attack is very out of character. 

An animal control officer ticketed the dog owners because the animals were loose. They are also quarantined in the home for the next few weeks. 

Leonilla is now in the process of filing paperwork to get the three dogs removed from the home.
