Pit Bull Attacks, Kills 9-Year-Old

While the attorneys at Feldman, Kronfeld & Beatty are dog owners, and have friends and family that owns pit bulls, the attorneys here are concerned about the widespread misuse of this dangerous breed of dogs. While the New York courts have said, on multiple occasions, that pit bulls are not so dangerous as to put the owner on notice of the danger of that breed, we still seek justice for those attacked by pit bulls.

On Sunday, a 9-year-old and two others were playing in the back yard of 236 Holland Avenue in Elmont, Long Island. Their neighbor, Carlyle Arnold, had a two-year-old pit bull named Kane that he, on occasion, complimented as a "Beast!" This "Beast!" locked its jaws around the doomed girl and shook her like a rag doll, and when police officers arrived and tried to release the girl, the dog attacked them too. The officers shot and killed the dog. The child died a few hours later at Franklin Hospital.

If you or a loved one are attacked by a pit bull, talk to an experienced trial attorney like the attorneys at Feldman, Kronfeld & Beatty about your rights and potential claims. Here, there are reports that "if somebody came too close to the house, [the dog] would react . . . [and] start barking." These are clues that, on further investigation, may lead to a potential claim.
