Judge gives 11 fighting pit bulls temporary reprieve

The Orlando Sentinel reported last week that circuit judge Mark Hill stayed the euthanization of 11 pit bulls at the center of an animal fighting case. The prosecutor in the case had filed a motion to euthanize the animals, but the public defender opposed the motion on the grounds that it would be akin to destroying evidence. An original order allowing the animals to be killed was appealed to the Fifth District Court of Appeal.
