The Roseville owner of two dogs who allegedly mauled a neighbor’s mini-pinscher to death last week had the dogs euthanized over the weekend.
“I hated to do it, but I just cannot put up with this anymore,” said Louis Morin who was charged by Roseville police late last week with a probation violation. “No one saw my dogs kill her dog and I don’t think they did it.”
Morin was ordered last October by 39th District Judge Marco Santia in Roseville to keep his dogs under control in his backyard when they got into neighbor Jewel Kadelak’s back yard and killed one of her dogs. Santia put Morin on probation and set a fine.
Kadelak, who lives next door to Morin on Roseville Boulevard, said she came home last Wednesday and found her other dog dead in her backyard.
She called Roseville police and once again Morin was accused of letting his dogs roam and was arrested for violating the terms of his probation.
Roseville Deputy Police Chief Anthony Cona said both of his dogs were confiscated. They were taken to the Macomb County Animal Shelter where they were euthanized over the weekend, Morin said.
“I am trying to be a good neighbor, but nothing satisfied her (Kadelak),” Morin said on Tuesday. “Police said they saw a large hole under the wooden fence, but anyone could have dug it.”
Morin said one of the dogs that was euthanized was a Rottweiler and the other a pit bull.
“My dogs were not mean and were great with kids,” Morin said. “I don’t know why Jewel feels they were vicious.”
