What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Dogs Accused of Biting People Impounded

Posted on August 8th, 2008 No Comments

Two dogs that have allegedly bitten people, each in a separate incident, in the town of Sterling, VA have been found and impounded. They are being called a pit bull and a pit bull mix, although these two breeds are often misidentified. One of the dogs has allegedly bitten a woman while she was walking, the other is accused of biting a man who was jogging through the neighborhood.

The owners of the dogs and the bite victims will all testify at a hearing on August 27. State law says that a dog who attacks a person or a pet will be declared “dangerous,” unless the court determines that the dog will probably not attack again. For example, a dog that attacks only when threatened would not be considered dangerous.

If you have been bitten by a dog with a negligent owner, you could be able to regain your losses. Contact Jacksonville dog bite attorney Donald Guthrie at 904-296-1088.
