According to reports, a pit bull attack happened on January 2 near the vicinity of Rose and Jackson Parkway. Four victims sustained injuries: the owner of the pit bull, his mother, a 7-year-old boy, and the mother of the young boy. The young boy and the pit bull’s mother required stitches.
Officers stated that the owner of the five-year-old animal purchased him off Craigslist about five months prior to the incident. Authorities are working to locate the previous owner in order to determine whether or not the dog had and prior history of aggression. The current owner of the dog as expressed his wishes to have the animal put down. Currently, the dog is quarantined at the Humane Animal Welfare Society in Waukesha.
At Habush Habush & Rottier S.C.®, we understand the complexities associated with animal attack cases. Many people love and keep pets of their own, establishing familial bonds and relationships that confound the idea of animal attacks. However, there are those pet owners who allow or encourage aggressive behavior in their dogs, and this can lead to violent attacks such as this one. We work with victims of these attacks to hold the owners responsible for their part so as to ensure justice is served. Call (800) 242-2874 today to learn more.
