Dangerous Dog Charge For Bucks County Pit Bull Owner

Posted on: July 16th, 2012       Attorney Thomas Newell

On July 11, 2012, the Hulmeville Police Department released to the Bucks County PA dog bite attorney a 4 page report regarding their investigation of a 6/8/12 pit bull attack in Hulmeville PA. A young boy had been an invited guest of the defendants. After entering the defendants’ home, he was attacked by their unrestrained pit bull.

The Bucks County pit bull attack victim was bitten on both hands and his right leg. He was taken to Doylestown Hospital where 15 individual puncture wounds were identified. 9 stitches were needed to close the dog bite wounds. He also was later given a tetanus shot.

Unfortunately, this is not the first time this pit bull had made an unprovoked attack on a human being. In August of 2011, the pit bull had bitten another neighborhood boy. He received dog bite wounds to his right arm and back which needed medical care at St. Mary Medical Center in Langhorne PA. The defendant mother has been charged with 2 PA Dog Law violations: harboring a dangerous dog and owning an unlicensed dog.
