A seven-year-old girl from Montgomery County was visiting her father when she was bit by a pitbull named Toro. The dog had previously attacked a mail carrier in 2011, and had issues with animal control in the past.
The pitbull’s owner and the landlord of the house, Andrew Kaupert, had left the house at the time. Kaupert was renting the house from his parents and the case held both Kaupert and his parents responsible for the attack.
Due to the attack, where Toro bit her twice, the girl underwent five surgeries and received scarring on her leg. She received both economic and noneconomic damages.Click below for the full story.
