Selectmen will hold a hearing on Tuesday at 8:15 p.m. on the future of Logan, a 4-year-old English bulldog. Animal Control Officer Ashley Mills requested the “dangerous dog” hearing after reports that Logan hurt two people and another dog in two separate incidents. On April 24, Logan reportedly attacked a yellow Labrador retriever, and bit its owner when he attempted to intervene. On May 26, Logan reportedly bit a woman when she walked by his fenced-in yard on Manomet Avenue. Mills said it was unclear how the dog reached the woman, but there was no doubt she was injured. “I am concerned about the well-being and safety of the public,” Mills wrote to selectmen. Selectmen could order the dog removed from Hull, restrained, muzzled, confined to his owner’s home, or, as a last resort, euthanized, Mill said. She said she is not recommending that the dog be euthanized, especially since Logan’s owner said he now lives with a relative in Boston. “For the safety of the residents . . . I’m suggesting if the dog comes back to visit, that [the owners] let me know, and that the dog is on a leash and somebody has control of it all times,” Mills said.
