Moose, the five-year-old Cane Corso Mastiff who attracted attention around central Texas was euthanized Monday.

Last week, Channel 6 spoke with Moose’s owner, Tony who was hoping to find a no-kill shelter or animal sanctuary for the mastiff.

Killeen Animal Shelter spokesperson Ofelia Miramontez confirmed Tuesday the dog was euthanized.

Miramontez said in a statement last week the dog acted viciously toward staff caring for him and had an history of aggressive behavior.
