Subject: Pit Bull Attack Update
From: David Glover
My wife was the individual
recently attacked by the pit bulls on the corner of Henderson Road and
Hershey Lane. This occurred at 7:15 a.m. on June 20th, 2007, as
she was walking our Yorkshire Terrier and Dachshund. She received
a severely lacerated left arm as a result of the attack. This was
a very predictable tragedy, as many in the neighborhood know.
Numerous incidents and complaints concerning these dogs have occurred
over the previous years. Aggressive dogs such as these do not
belong in this, or any other community. If you are a concerned
neighbor, or have personally witnessed any act of aggression by these
dogs, we need your support.
DeKalb County has set a court
date to have a Judge rule on the situation. Please share your
concerns or experiences on:
Friday, July 6th at 2:00 p.m.
DeKalb County Recorders Court
3630 Camp Circle
Public Safety Building
(I-285 & Memorial Dive behind the Police Station)
If you are unable to attend but
would like to share your thoughts, the following individuals may be
DeKalb County Animal Control
Supervisor William Little (404) 294-2940
Investigator Brenda Johnson

Henderson Road area neighbors asked if there was any information yet
about the results of the 7/6/07 court hearing. I received the
following update from David Glover:
(owner) was found guilty of breaking four DeKalb County Animal Control
ordinances and was fined $1200 per violation. She must pay the
$4800 and then fence her yard prior to receiving her dogs back.
She seems committed to retaining them in the neighborhood though."
8/1/07 update through
"Of concern: The owner of the pit bulls
on Henderson Court chose to pay the fine, erect a fence, and keep the
dogs guilty of viciously attacking one of our neighbors even though
these dogs pose a threat to our neighborhood. We must be vigilant
in order to protect ourselves, our children, our families, our friends
and visitors. The owner and The DeKalb County Animal Control must
be held to the utmost accountability for making sure these animals are
securely contained at all times. This will continue to be a
potentially dangerous situation."
