SHARE CAPTION ONLY: FREEDOM AT LAST FOR OREGON POOCH

Kenny Nelms hugs Blue Two after a judge in Salem, Ore., ruled the dachshund terrier should go free after spending 75 days on "death row" for biting a man. Marion County Circuit Judge Richard D. Barber ruled the county violated the pooch's constitutional right to due process. Owner Karen Parkison greeted her pet with tears in her eyes. She said the dog had turned gray and lost weight. The dog had bitten a man July 13. The victim said he did not want the dog put to death.
