CENTRALIA, Wash. - A pit bull named Hank that was wrongfully blamed for killing livestock last year is now free.
A Thurston County judge on Wednesday voided a Lewis County euthanasia order and ordered that Hank be released to his adoptive Centralia family.
Though witnesses said the pit bull that killed the livestock was not Hank, a Lewis County judge ruled Hank a dangerous dog and directed he be put down.
Hank's owners have been fighting in court for five months and finally won on Wednesday.
KIRO 7 was there for the happy reunion.
“It feels wonderful! It's like I can't tell you how great it is!,” said Hank’s owner, Jann Propp-Estimo.
The family said they planned on spoiling Hank.
