Investigation Into Westmoreland Co. Pit Bull Attack Continues

Posted on: December 12th, 2011       Attorney Thomas Newell

On Dec. 12, 2011, Attorney Newell spoke with several potential witnesses who may have information regarding the owner of the pit bull that savagely attacked Hayden Stoll on 11/18/11 in Herminie PA. A resident of nearby Arona PA owned multiple pit bulls over the last few years.

It is alleged that one of his pit bulls bit a young boy in the face on 12/19/10. Medical care was provided at Westmoreland Hospital with stitches needed to close the facial wounds. Local dog catcher, Fred Moran, informed Attorney Newell that the pit bull owner in question was cited 3 or 4 times in the past for various PA Dog Law violations, including failure to confine.

While it is unclear as to the connection between the most recent pit bull attack and the resident of Arona, the investigation regarding the identity of the negligent dog owner continues.
