One Dog Had Been Labeled "Dangerous"
Apopka, FL - Over the weekend, a 69-year old woman (also reported as 80-years old) was severely mauled by three loose rottweilers. "She was just walking and the dogs attacked her," said animal control officer Charles Griffin. The victim was rushed to Orlando Regional Medical Center and into surgery with severe bites to her legs. The woman is expected to survive the attack.
Cecil Jackson, who was taking care of the dogs while the owners were out of town, faces a fine up to $1,500 dollars for allowing the dogs to run loose and cause severe injuries. Officers say they've been to the house before due to the animals. Furthermore, one of the rotweillers named Roxy was declared dangerous last year. Currently, the animals are in animal control custody.
Who knows if the dog owner told the dogsitter that Roxy had a dangerous past? Who knows if this victim will ever be able to walk again?
