Please review our comment policy.

  1. too bad more victims and/or their families don’t sue government officials in these cases. they might start taking public safety more seriously.

  2. No doubt! I remember this case. I wonder if they could do the same thing in Tennessee? Animal Control had been out to that house 5 times before the fatal mauling of Jennifer Lowe.

  3. Dorothy Sullivan was my great grandmother and my family is still fighting in court. All i know is that I hope we win not just because it’s my family fighting but also because I don’t think it’s right that animal control was called and nothing happened. My grandmother was inside hiding from the dogs. She was almost attacked as well.

  4. Jacqui, those animal control officers should be in JAIL too.

    They are as much to blame as the dog owner, probably MORE SO because they are hired by the county to enforce the law and protect the public.

    I am so glad your family is still fighting, and I am disgusted that innocent victims must fight so hard against bad government employees

    Do these animal control officers still have their jobs? They should have been fired immediately.

    Your great grandmother’s attack was one of the first things that woke me up to the terrible evil perpetuated by these pit bull people and groups, and the criminal behavior of some of our government officials.
