5 thoughts on “Animal Control Officer Pinpoints Issue: Pit Bull Owners Can't Pay Victim Medical Bills

  1. Looks like the pit bull owner has pleaded guilty. No word on the restitution fees for the victim.

    Sue Mays, 42, 1887 Cumberland Av., was found to be the owner of the dogs that bit the 16-year-old female while she was walking down Browning Street in Dyersburg. Mays was cited into Dyersburg City Court for an appearance before Judge Dean Dedmon on Monday, April 6. She pleaded guilty to violating the city’s vicious dog ordinance…

  2. Tina Agerson? Didn’t she buy little Duke right after Duke was put down? They have money to buy and feed a dog but no money to compensate their victims.

  3. The poor victim was on “owner property” for this Knoxville attack. She’s out of luck with civil recourse…

  4. The usual advice and instructions that people give kids on dealing with dog attacks DO NOT WORK WITH PIT BULLS

    Pit bulls will keep trying to kill no matter what the victim does.

    Their only hope is a bystander who has the firepower or weapon needed to stop the attack.

    It is delusional to try to tell a kid that they can stop an attack by a pit bull.

    And it is delusional to try to convince the community that it is possible.

    Pit bulls aren’t normal dogs.
