'Dangerous' Volusia County dogs caught
Two dogs deemed dangerous by police in DeLand have been caught and will go up for adoption if an owner doesn't step forward to claim them.
Officers tell Local 6 they tracked down one of the dogs on Saturday and found the second one on Monday.
The dogs were blamed for killing two cats and four ducks since mid-February. They were spotted roaming around the heart of downtown DeLand. Parents told Local 6 they were concerned the dogs would attack children in the neighborhood.

Police tell Local 6 the dogs will enter the city's "Second Chance Program." The dogs will be held in a kennel for three days to give their owner a chance to claim them. The three-day hold also gives city workers a chance to choose a shelter for the dogs if an owner doesn't step forward.
DeLand police tell Local 6 the dogs have been "passive" since being captured.
