On Aug. 10, 2011, a Washington County PA pit bull owner was cited for a violation of the PA Dog Law after a vicious dog attack on Aug. 1, 2011. According to The Observer-Reporter, a Claysville PA resident allowed his pit bull to run loose at a groundbreaking ceremony to mark the construction to restore Dutch Fork Lake. The pit bull mauled a beagle. The injuries required 3 surgeries and over 250 stitches to treat with vet bills of in excess of $1,500.00.
