GRANTS PASS, Ore. — Two dogs are off death row in Grants Pass and now at new homes outside of Oregon.

The two Anatolian Shepards were part of pack of dogs which attacked a herd of alpacas and killed four of them. County commissioners decided Thursday to allow them be sent out of state instead of being put down.

A group of residents, which included business owner Carl Raskin raised thousands of dollars and petitioned the commissioners for a pardon. A state law allows for a dog which doesn’t have a record of attacks to be removed from the state rather than put down.

The dogs are already at new homes in California and Washington.
