Your photo caption and headline said the dog was killed. The story indicates the dog is expected to make a full recovery. Which is it?

@casey updated! An earlier version of the story, based on an earlier county news alert, said the dog had died.

I'm very glad the dog is going to be ok, but this really can't be too unexpected given how close the area is to Huddart Park, and the time of day. As well, a 6 foot fence is nothing to a big cat---no need to climb. They just jump it, very easily. A bobcat can do that.
