Indiana Dog May Be Killed Under Late Owner’s Will

AURORA, Ind. (AP) _ The fate of a German shepherd named Bela remains uncertain despite his late Indiana owner's wish that the dog be euthanized and buried with her.
 
Connie Ley of Aurora in southeastern Indiana died Nov. 25. Her attorney, Doug Denmure, tells WCPO and WLWT that Ley's will stipulates that Bela must be euthanized, cremated and buried with her or sent to an animal shelter in Utah.
 
Denmure says Ley entrusted a friend with making the final decision on Bela's fate and what will happen to the dog remains unresolved. He says Ley felt that Bela displayed aggressive tendencies and wasn't safe around strangers, particularly children.
 
The 105-pound dog is currently being housed at animal shelter in nearby Lawrenceburg, located 20 miles west of Cincinnati, Ohio.
