PA DOG WARDENS

Nominee For Dumbest Dog Owner of 2014

Posted on: February 25th, 2014  padog

What a Schuylkill County PA man did with his adult male Chinese Shar Pei on 2/4/14 may qualify for the dumbest decision made by a dog owner in 2014. His wife wanted to go grocery shopping. What should he do with the Shar Pei?

CHINESE SHAR PEI #2

  1. Leave it at home with ample food and water;
  2. Bring it along and sit with the Shar Pei in the SUV while his wife was grocery shopping;
  3. Put the dog on a leash and take the Shar Pei for a walk; or,
  4. Park in a busy and full parking lot, tie the Shar Pei to the bumper of your SUV while you sit inside the vehicle?

An 84 year-old woman parked her car in that same lot and began walking past the parked cars on her way into the grocery store. Suddenly and without any warning, the adult male Shar Pei jumped up, knocked her to the ground and bit her. The Luzerne County dog bite victim suffered multiple bite wounds to her left arm which were treated at the Geisinger Health Clinic.

By tying the dog to the bumper of the vehicle, the dog owner now artificially created a situation where the Shar Pei would naturally protect its new found “turf” and attack anyone who came too close to the SUV. To do so in a crowded parking lot with many pedestrians is unfathomable. The PA Dog Law can’t prevent a dog owner’s complete lack of common sense.
