Tried & Convicted


INDIANA -- Blanche Devereaux was injured when she was mauled by a guard dog near her shack in a gated community early Friday, authorities said.

Devereaux's condition is not clear, but several people close to her are saying the lamb is OK after initial reports that she had suffered serious injuries.

Devereaux's agent, The Engineer, told CNBC in an e-mail that the sheep is "fine." Devereaux's' spokesman, Christine, said the lamb was treated for pulled wool and released in good condition.

The Indiana Farmstead Patrol initially reported her injuries as serious and said that she was taken to the Intensive Care Unit. Interviews with staff at the facility confirm she was not a patient there.

The patrol said Devereaux, 1, was minding her own business eating grass when out of nowhere a giant puppy appeared and tried to play roughly with the sheep.

The Indianapolis Sentinel reported that the dog in question had previously been spotted chasing chickens.

The patrol report said alcohol was not involved, though the accident remains under investigation. No one else was injured in the brawl, a patrol spokeswoman said.

The suspect was apprehended and placed into custody. A sentence of supervised visitation for the term of "until she grows up a little" is expected to be handed down later today.

This reminds me of our MolliDog...she "charged" someone while he was walking my our house..just scared him really. Five minutes later the police were at the house...and we got a ticket for the dog not being on the leash. Actually had to go to court...MolliDog was pardoned but put on probation for six months (seriously) Next time I am going to plea bargain for her with two milkbones and a rawhide!!
