A Carlsbad woman says animal control wrongfully seized her dog.
Officials have now put down the animal.
The mailman and neighbors say Panda chased him and growled at them, but he never hurt anyone.
Alana Gonzales calls Panda a part of the family.
However, she says animal control informed her that because of Panda’s aggressive nature, it could not return him home.
KRQE-TV reports Gonzalez took this to court.
Police records show the mailman claiming he pepper-sprayed Panda several times, but the dog still charged at him.
