Supreme Court: Dog Attack Could Become A Felony

In Law on August 29, 2007 by Petr Bokuvka

According to a recent Supreme Court ruling, an owner of a dog that attacks another person could face criminal prosecution automatically and could go to jail for felony. Right now most such cases are second-class misdemeanors…

If the dog owner does not take all possible precautions that would prevent the dog from running away and hurting people, and if this really happens, it will be a felony, the ruling says. The court has issued it to unify the rulings of lower-degree courts. It is based on a specific case of a dog breeder whose dogs ran away and bit a 39 year-old man so may times he lost a lot of blood and died.
