No charges will be laid in the death of a girl dogs killed near Oakbank last month.
Gracie Herntier-Clark, 7, was playing outside when two Alaskan malamutes mauled her while she was visiting family friends March 16. The Grade 2 student from the St. Andrews area was familiar with the dogs. It's not known what triggered the attack.
The RCMP said Thursday their investigation is done and no charges will be laid against the dogs' owners. The two animals have been euthanized.
Gracie "loved all animals, especially her three dogs Blacky, Mango and 'The Mexican' Chi-Chi," her obituary in the Free Press read.
"Gracie spent countless hours with her dogs teaching them how to read and write. She never gave up on them."
