AUSTIN, Minn. (FOX 47) -- Discussions took place at Tuesday night's Austin City Council meeting about a string of attacks by two dogs.
One is a pit bull named Duke, the other a shepherd mix named Baby.
In the first incident, one of the dogs attacked a child who was riding his bike through the neighborhood, leaving scratches.
The latest incident concerned authorities the most when a dog bit off the tip of its owner's finger and left gashes in her leg.
The Austin City Council heard from both of the owners and reviewed evidence Tuesday night, but in the end, they voted 5-to-1 that both of the dogs are dangerous to society.
The owners will now have to lock up their dogs in a kennel with a muzzle and get liability insurance in the case of another attack, which can be expensive.
If they don't abide by the rules, the dogs will be put down. They are both currently being held in the Austin City Pound.
