CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Charlotte-Mecklenburg Animal Care and Control admitted killing two pit bulls by mistake. Now, the dogs' owner says the organization has offered him $800 for the dogs, but he's not accepting it.
Will Harlee says it's not about the money. He wants to make sure what happened to his dogs, Deuce and Ralow, never happens again to other dogs and their families.
Harlee's two pit bulls got out of his back yard through a broken fence. The dogs were supposed to be put on a hold until Harlee repaired his fence.
He fixed the fence, but when he got to Animal Care and Control, they told him they euthanized his dogs by mistake.
Animal control is conducting an internal investigation into what went wrong.
