Father Knew Dog Was Dangerous
Middletown, KY - A father is charged with child endangering after his pit bull attacked his two-year-old daughter. Investigators say Johnathon Miller took a pit bull into his home even though he knew it bit a man's nose three weeks ago. Last week the dog bit the cheek of his little girl, severely injuring her.
"Unfortunately, the little girl is the one suffering and ultimately the dog will end up being euthanized," said Liz Lucas, of Middletown Animal Control. "So, if he'd followed the law hopefully we wouldn't be in this situation."
Animal Control Officers say Miller did not have the dog properly licensed or insured. They add that Miller has broken Middletown's dog laws in the past.
