On Feb. 4, 2013, two innocent Lehigh Valley residents were mauled by a roaming pit bull in Lehigh County PA.  A press release provided by the Salisbury Township Police said that they were called to the 1400 block of Pearl Avenue to investigate a dog attack.  The officers found a woman who was bitten and knocked down by a stray pit bull in her own front yard.

cock-a-pooAs the Salisbury Township Animal Control Officer and the Lehigh County Humane Society were helping the dog bite victim and trying to capture the unrestrained pit bull, it attacked a 73 year-old man and his small dog who were walking nearby.  Both Lehigh Valley dog bite victims required medical care.

The small dog was taken to a local vet’s office where surgery was needed to repair numerous major injuries.  If you or a family member have been attacked by an unrestrained dog, call Attorney Thomas J.
