WARSAW, N.D. - Walsh County sheriff’s deputies have killed 13 dogs and arrested their owner, Peter Grzeskowiak, 59, after some of the animals attacked a man as he walked down a country road early Sunday.


“These dogs posed a threat,” Sheriff Lauren Wild said Tuesday. “We knew they posed a danger before Sunday, but we have never been able to do anything. We can’t have dogs like that running around.”
