A pregnant pit bull was euthanized by a Texas animal shelter back in May, KAMR reports

Dacia Anderson, a volunteer at the Amarillo Animal Management and Welfare posted to Facebook about the animal shelter putting down a pregnant pit bull.

The shelter said the dog was surrendered by her owner for being too aggressive.

"She had no markings on her kennel that she was aggressive whatsoever, so to say she was aggressive to me is putting a spin on something that's a narrative. If she was aggressive she should have been marked at such she should have been in the appropriate facility," said Anderson.

Anderson said she noticed the dog was in labor and notified the shelter.

The dog, who was in labor, and her puppies were then euthanized, Director of AAMW Richard Havens said.
