A pit bull who mauled another dog and attacked that dog’s owner while running around unleashed has been allowed by a court ruling to live in the neighborhood despite the vicious attack.
The city is said to be appealing the decision and obviously, if justice is to be done in this instance the pit bull should be put down or sent out of the city.
We find it incomprehensible that despite the Lynn Dog Officer’s opinion that the attacking pit bull is a dog of vicious disposition and should be banned from the city that it is being allowed to remain.
We urge City Attorney Vin Phelan who is representing the city to do whatever it takes to get justice.
Justice is important as this is the kind of dog who will attack again.
