On Nov. 7, 2011, 2 women were found guilty of harboring dangerous dogs by a Lehigh County District Justice.  As noted in The Morning Call, a woman’s 6 pit bulls attacked her sister-in-law in her home as she was feeding them crackers.  Whitehall Twp. Police had been called to the home several times before the 9/5/11 pit bull attack for dog related issues.  The homeowner had spent days in a local hospital being treated for dog bite wounds to her face and legs.
