2 Dogs Get Loose, Attack People at Missouri Mall


Two pit bulls got loose in the parking lot of a Columbia, Missouri shopping mall and attacked several people nearby. Police have confirmed one dog bite victim. He was attacked when he tried to divert the attention of the dogs while they were chasing a woman in the parking lot. Police are expecting to hear reports of other victims shortly.

Police officers shot and killed one of the pit bulls at the time of the attacks. The other dog escaped and is still on the loose. The dogs' owner was arrested and charged with assault and obstructing police operations.

The dog on the loose is a gray pit bull with a white chest. He is believed to be heading towards his trailer park home in Columbia. Police have ordered the dog's owner to notify them immediately if the dog shows up so that they can have it evaluated by animal control.

Dog owners have an obligation to take the proper measures to ensure that their dogs do not attack innocent people they come into contact with. This obligation is heightened when a dog has demonstrated a history of violence or is a breed known for dog bite attacks, such as a pit bull. When dog owners fail to take the proper precautions with their pets, they are guilty of negligence and can be held liable for damages sustained in the dog bite attack.

If you have been the victim of a dog bite attack in the Chicago, Illinois area, please contact the Law Offices of Barry G. Doyle, P.C. today to schedule a consultation.
