Tethered Pit Bull Kills 4 Year Old Boy

Posted on: January 25th, 2013       Attorney Thomas Newell

On January 19, 2013, a 4 year-old boy was mauled to death by a chained pit bull.  The Montgomery County, Texas resident had climbed over his backyard fence and into his neighbor’s yard.  There was a tethered pit bull that inflicted severe injuries to the small child.  The boy was medevaced to a Houston area hospital where he died that same evening.

PIT BULLAttorney Thomas J. Newell is a strong advocate of laws which drastically reduce the number of hours per day a dog can be tethered outside.  Numerous studies have proven that chained dogs become extremely aggressive and territorial.  Tethered dogs tend to view anyone on their property as the enemy and will attack without provocation.

Various townships in York County PA have passed anti-tethering legislation and Attorney Newell encourages more cities, towns and municipalities to do likewise.  For those that have been injured in a Pennsylvania dog mauling, call Thomas J.
