A Valley man put down his two dogs after a series of attacks along a Phoenix canal.

Last week, neighbors in the area of 7th Street and Dunlap Avenue said two boxer mixes attacked, and even killed several smaller pets.

The owner of dogs, Jeffery Thorpe, said he felt awful about the attacks. The owners of the victim animals had demanded that the vicious dogs be put down.

Thorpe put down his dogs over the weekend. He says his dogs were never violent prior to the attacks.
