PA DOG WARDENS

If a dog attacks a person in PA, will it be put down?

Posted on: October 26th, 2019  padog

If an unleashed dog pursues and bites someone in Pennsylvania, there are only 2 circumstances that would require euthanasia of the attacking dog:  If the human being was killed or if the dog was found to be dangerous by a judge after a prior attack and the instant dog bite was unprovoked.

The Pennsylvania dog attack attorney has assisted many PA Dog Wardens in the prosecution of Harboring a Dangerous Dog citations pursuant to Section 502 (A) of the PA Dog Law. Once a dog owner has been found guilty of this charge, there are multiple requirements/restrictions placed upon them. The dog must be neutered/spayed. The vicious canine must be muzzled anytime it is in public. A microchip is required to be implanted. An annual fee is required. Warning signs must be posted on the dog owner’s property. Liability insurance must be purchased.

The PA dog bite injury lawyer has served the legal needs of PA personal injury claimants for nearly 4 decades. Dog attack victims from 31 different Pennsylvania Counties have chosen Attorney Thomas J. Newell to serve as their legal representative. Personal injury attorneys have referred their dog bite cases to the Pennsylvania dog attack lawyer. Attorney Newell provides free home consultations to Pennsylvania dog bite victims.
