Posted on: September 7th, 2012       Attorney Thomas Newell

On Sept. 4, 2012, an Allentown PA bulldog owner was cited for harboring a dangerous dog in violation of the PA Dog Law. Tom Harper, Sweep and Animal Control Manager of Allentown filed the charges with District Justice Michael D’Amore. The defendant’s hearing will take place on October 2, 2012 at 10:45 a.m.

The Allentown dog bite victim was walking a friend’s Wheaten Terrier on March 20, 2012 on East Clair Street. She was using a leash and had the dog totally restrained. The defendant’s bulldog was running loose, bit the terrier from behind and then placed its teeth around the terrier’s neck.

The 45 year-old woman kicked the bulldog to try to stop its attack on the terrier. The bulldog then attacked the woman. She put up her hands to protect her face. The Allentown PA resident sustained 8 dog bite wounds to her right hand. She received medical care at Sacred Heart Hospital with those medical bills alone totalling nearly $8,000.00.
