The city said the dog named Mocha attacked a cat in August, and a judge ruled her a dangerous dog.
Then why didn't Mommy pay for the insurance?
The judge ruled Monday the rescue picked to take Mocha was unfit.
FORGED PAPERWORK FROM THE ROANOKE VALLEY SPCA
The original stay put in place the week before was due to paperwork from the Roanoke Valley SPCA.
But City Manager Keith Barker explained, "In conversation with the Roanoke Valley SPCA, we found out those documents had actually been forged. We don't know by whom but it was somebody, obviously, working to save the animal."
Officials are investigating where the forged paperwork came from.
