Orlando Dog Bite Lawyer
A Jacksonville woman attacked by her friend’s pit bull-Labrador mix now has permanent scars on her lower lip, and she is urging Florida lawmakers to toughen existing laws against dog attacks. The victim said she was lying on a bed in a friend’s home taking a nap when her friend’s dog attacked her, causing a tear in her lower lip that required 185 stitches and plastic surgery. She told reporters that she wants her friend’s dog to be euthanized so that it can’t harm anyone else. Orlando personal injury lawyer James O. Cunningham has supported stronger laws against dangerous dogs for years. While there has been some progress, much remains to be done to protect Floridians from pit bulls and other dangerous breeds.
An Orange County man shot and fatally wounded one of two pit bulls he saw roaming freely in his neighborhood after seeing one of the dogs attack his cat. Orange County Animal Services officials say police responded to a call in the 6800 block of Thousand Oaks Boulevard at about 5:30 p.m. on February 5 and found the dead pit bull on the road. The owner of the cat told investigating officers that the two pit bulls had damaged his yard and fence and that he had retrieved his weapon and killed one of the dogs when he saw it in his yard with one of his cats in its mouth.
