FL Couple Arrested After Dog Bite

Comments Off

A Florida couple was arrested after their pit bull, bit a veterinary worker.

The couple has been charged with culpable negligence and keeping a dangerous animal.

The dog, Kane, was confiscated in February, after he attacked an animal control officer and tore his pants. But a judge returned the dog agreeing with the owners and their lawyers, that the dog had been provoked into biting the animal control officer.

The couple maintains, Kane, is a gentle animal. The dog didn’t just bite someone, he contends, obviously the Veterinarian caused the dog to get upset.

A Spokeswoman for Hillsborough County Animal Control says the worker suffered a painful bite on the face and may require plastic surgery.
