A Denham Springs woman is outraged after she says the animal shelter in Walker killed her dog without good reason.

Cassie baggett says her two pitbulls ran away from home about a week ago.

She says she couldn't track the dogs down until she posted a lost ad on Craigslist.

The man who responded told her he had rescued one of her dogs, but the other had been euthanized by Walker Animal Control.

Shelter officials say it doesn't adopt out pitbulls and workers followed procedure.

But Baggett says her dog was targeted because of its breed.
