Court fight over lost dog survives after dog’s owner dies
This file photo shows Charlie Holt, owner of WHSY talk radio. A federal appeals court has ruled that a legal fight over a lost dog could continue in Mississippi, even after the dog's owner has died. The dispute is over a German shepherd named Max who jumped out a window and escaped from his owner's Hattiesburg home in 2015. Max got loose when people were providing medical help to his owner, Holt, who had fallen and could not get up. (Charles Holt/Hattiesburg American via AP)
