On the afternoon of Wednesday, April 4, 2018, Las Cruces Police Officer Pierce E. Wilber responded to a call in reference to stolen property. While investigating, the officer requested that the resident, Philip Olona, put his Bullmastiff in the house so he could look around the back yard without fear of getting bit. Mr. Olona complied… but not well enough, apparently.
Managing to make a bad situation worse, after his dog bit the officer, Olona was unable to provide a responding animal control officer with any proof of vaccinations for his dog – named “Compon” – and Compon was taken for a ten-day quarantine. A few days later, while in quarantine, Compon fell ill. Olona’s mother was contacted for guidance on how to proceed, as Olona himself had been arrested in the interim.
Mr. Olona’s mother decided to have Compon seen by a veterinarian, who diagnosed the dog with severe bacterial pneumonia. Following one week of treatment the dog recovered and was returned to the care of the city animal shelter, as Olona had not complied with the city’s requirements for housing a dangerous dog, including “Beware of Dog” signage, fencing, and a kennel.
Despite multiple inspections and advisements of the requirements Olona ultimately failed to qualify for dangerous dog registration and Compon was euthanized on May 29, 2018, after a 30 day waiting period.
