The dog that bit Vanessa Carlton won't die

Some good news: Bella won't be killed, despite having bitten Vanessa Carlton.

The pit-bull had been due to be euthanised on Friday, after his owner said he was unable to afford the requirements for keeping a pitbull that's already had a taste of mid-market musician blood. The State was afraid that they couldn't guarantee that Bella wouldn't start hunting down Michelle Branch next.

Neighbours and friends - of the dog, presumably, rather than wispy female-lit-lite singer-songwriters - have stepped in to fund the necessary safeguards.
