Superior Court Judge Releases Congo The Dog Back To Owners

CongoCongo, a German Shepherd that was declared vicious and ordered to be euthanized by a lower court judge because of an attack on a landscaper, has been allowed to go home while his case is appealed to Superior Court.

A Superior Court judge signed a consent order to release Congo to his owners. Several conditions of the release include Congo wearing a muzzle and leash when he is outside, and Congo is not allowed to leave his owners’ property unless there is prior approval.

Congo had been held at an animal shelter during the case, and Congo’s owners, Elizabeth and Guy James, said their dog was depressed and not eating while at the shelter. The lower court judge had denied the James’ from taking custody of Congo while they appealed the decision.

James and his family are excited that Congo can come home during the appeals process.

    Save the dog! Congo was just doing his job, nobody has any right to euthunize him. He wasn’t doing anything wrong at all. The judge should start thinking a little bit more. The man H-I-T the dog with a rake. So in other words he asked for what he got. He provoked the dog, & the dog protected his property. Any one who is against Congo needs to understand that none of this was his fault. The gardener shouldnt have even been at the lady’s home yet anyways. SAVE CONGO!

    Sounds to me that the public NEEDS to support Ron Paul for president.He is pro america and will close the boarders.This will ensure security and stop any more of our animals from having to protect americans from illegal attacks and will reduce the crime rate. Congo did what is right for a dog that percieved his owner to be in danger.The illegal,…….is a criminal.No money should have been awarded.Sue the company that hired him.Remember,………….RON PAUL for president.He will set america back on track and bring border security. And………………… he belives in the constitution !

    Congo is a good pet , in a family that loves him very much. he is not a predator, looking for someone to attack. Congo should live. and people should have respect for Gods animals instead of teasing them.

    WASHINGTON, D.C. 20503
    June 23, 2006
    FROM: Clay Johnson III
    Deputy Director for Management
    SUBJECT: Protection of Sensitive Agency Information
    In an effort to properly safeguard our information assets while using information technology, it is essential for all departments and agencies to know their baseline of activities.
    The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) provided a checklist for protection of remote information. (See attachment) The intent of implementing the checklist is to compensate for the lack of physical security controls when information is removed from, or accessed from outside the agency location. In addition to using the NIST checklist, I am recommending all departments and agencies take the following actions:
    1. Encrypt all data on mobile computers/devices which carry agency data unless the data is determined to be non-sensitive, in writing, by your Deputy Secretary or an individual he/she may designate in writing;
    2. Allow remote access only with two-factor authentication where one of the factors is provided by a device separate from the computer gaining access;
    3. Use a “time-out” function for remote access and mobile devices requiring user re-authentication after 30 minutes inactivity; and
    4. Log all computer-readable data extracts from databases holding sensitive information and verify each extract including sensitive data has been erased within 90 days or its use is still required.
    Most departments and agencies have these measures already in place. We intend to work with the Inspectors General community to review these items as well as the checklist to ensure we are properly safeguarding the information the American taxpayer has entrusted to us. Please ensure these safeguards have been reviewed and are in place within the next 45 days.

    Congo should definetely not be euthanized, any dog would act the way congo did. The landscapers caused the problem not the dogs.The landscapers should be ashamed of what he did the dogs and the family.
