The only one that could possibility apply is "It has killed or inflicted substantial harm upon a human being or other animal". If that is what the lady is claiming, that's an absolute lie!


Countersue the plantiff and slap her with agraviated and emotional stress, or what ever you want make it a statement to her for putting you on such hardship!!!!.

i gotta agree. and you have the proof on your side here...she waited weeks to go to the vet (a bill which you paid). if the lady is pushing this, she deserves to get shoved back.

hope all turn out well.

From your description of what happened it doesn't sound like any damage was done, but the "law" is self perpetuating, so they will make all kinds of accusations in order to have a case to bring to court. That way it keeps the judges and lawyers working. I'm sorry, but I kind of feel like you might be leaving something out. Why would anyone want to go to all that trouble if they were only frightened but not hurt? Not that there aren't a lot of nutty people in this world. But if it happened the way you described it, and no one was bitten, then an honest judge with no malice toward dogs (or your lawyer) should ask, "where is the tort?" which I believe is the way they put it when there was no harm done. But get a lawyer for advice, don't look for any here. Don't risk losing your dogs.

Oh, I reread it. The animal control officer said she told him her dog had a puncture wound. But did he actually see the puncture wound?

I know from having the same thing happen to me on several occasions that it can give you a pretty good scare when a large dog runs out from someone's house as you are walking by with the little ones on a leash. I've cursed out a few people myself for allowing it to happen. But usually it is the leashed dog that feels threatened because of the restraint and starts the fight.

Unless my dog suffered a lot of damage and the owner was callus about it, I would not want to be the cause of someone losing their dog because it was doing what dogs do.

We had a neighbor once who owned two big, nasty dogs and let them run loose. They didn't bother anyone although they looked mean. One day my wife went out for the paper and our Lhasa Apso looked out and saw those dogs as a threat to my wife, and he went after them. He chased them behind a bunch of bushes so she didn't see what happened, but he came home limping a few minutes later. They must have grabbed him by the neck because there was muscle damage and he could hardly hold his head up. It cost us a vet bill, but there was nothing we could do since he started the fight. He was never the same after that, but he stayed out of trouble.

I suspect that the woman involved simply vented on the animal control guy and all the rest is the system on autopilot.

Wasn't there a suggestion to call the DA and ask what goes on? Does not seem to me that there is anything here. Maybe a phone call will make it go away.

And if it won't go away you can at least find out what statute you are charged with violating.
