Pitbulls to be euthanized following dog bite attack

Three pitbulls that mauled a man in a Bakersfield back yard will be euthanized at the end of their 10-day quarantine period.
  
City animal control supervisor, Tammy Davis, said, “The owner will not be redeeming the dogs. They won’t be released into rescue or anything like that because of their behavioral history.”
  
The three pitbulls brutally attacked Steven Herrera on November 3. The 35-year-old victim received moderate injuries from bite wounds to his abdomen and left arm. He had entered the yard of his brother Salvador Romero when his brother was away. Romero had previously warned Herrera not to enter the yard on his own as the dogs became aggressive during an earlier visit.
  
One neighbor snapped pictures while another neighbor used a cane to help the victim beat off the dogs.  
  
Romero would have to pay almost $300 in impound fees to retrieve the pitbulls from the county animal shelter. He would also have to license the dogs and prove that they were up to date on vaccinations.  
  
Aggressive dogs pose a real threat of serious injury.  Owners of aggressive dogs must post signs warning visitors of danger.  Training a dog to be aggressive or allowing a dog to be repeatedly aggressive may make a dog owner liable for any dog bite attacks. If you or a loved one has been bitten by an aggressive dog, you may be eligible for compensation. We can help.
