CBS 11 was first to tell you about the story on Monday.

Animal Control investigators say Mary Mooney and Mitch Miskey were hiding their puppy, Yankey, so he wouldn’t be put down.

Yankey was deemed dangerous after biting a child in May.

A Colleyville judge ordered for the dog to be turned over to Keller Animal Control and put down.  Yankey was put down Monday evening.

It was determined at a hearing on Monday that Mooney and Miskey were hiding the dog, and both ended up going to jail after not turning him in.

Yankey was eventually found at a family friend’s home.
