Feurtado Wallace May Face $900 Bucks in Fines
Chambersburg, PA - The owner of a pit bull that escaped its home by smashing through a window during an evening thunderstorm, entered into a neighbor's screen door and attacked and killed a pet inside, will be cited for three dog law violations -- the unnamed dog is no longer with us, it was shot by police officers at the crime scene.
Dog Law Enforcement agents delivered the citations to Judge Gary Carter's office charging Feurtado Wallace with harboring a dangerous dog, failure to have the dog registered in Pennsylvania and failure to have the dog vaccinated. If convicted of all three charges, Wallace could receive a maximum fine of $300 for each charge.
A pittance for killing a family dog and terrorizing a family, but all that Pennsylvania law allows.
DogsBite.org hopes that the victimized family of James Maher presses forward with a civil suit against the pit bull's owner Feurtado Wallace.
