Pit Bull Attack

By The Law Office of WT Johnson on February 9, 2012

A man who used his pit bull as a weapon was arrested by Nassau Bay police last week. According to police, he had his pit bull attack his two neighbors.

The neighbors were arguing with the man when he told his dogs to attack them. One victim was bitten in the ankle and needed six stitches, and the 16-year-old victim was bitten on his arm.

Police believe the attack was intentional. The dog’s owner and his wife were reported saying, “Go get them!” to their dog.  But some residents say they never heard them tell the dog to attack.

The owner of the pit bull is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon—with the dog considered the weapon. Nassau Bay Animal Control officers took the pit bull away to be quarantined.

4.5 million people are bitten by dogs each year, and almost one in five of those require medical attention. In 2010 there were 34 fatal dog attacks in the U.S. But only 16,000 dog bite victims receive insurance payments from homeowners and renters insurance policies purchased by dog owners per year.

If you or your loved one has been the victim of a dog bite, contact WT Johnson today for a consultation.
