A Fontana couple is facing seven felony counts for letting their five vicious dogs run loose - this incident led to the attack on three children out for a walk with their mother. The children (ages 5, 6, 7) were severely injured with bite wounds, a broken rib cage and a punctured lung. Animal control officers reported that the dogs were all pit bull mixes - one dog was shot and killed when it attacked a police officer. The others have been euthanized.
Prosecutors believed the case warranted felony charges due to the seriousness of the injuries and circumstances of the attack on very small children.
The man, pleaded not guilty while his wife, said she plans to surrender today. The man is being held at the West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga in lieu of $250,000 bail. The man and the woman could face a maximum of seven years in prison.
The mother of the children, had mixed feelings about the charges and said all she wanted was for justice to be served. I hope the mother of the three children has contacted an experienced Personal Injury attorney; one who will make sure justice is served for her children.
