Woman sues owners of dog killed by her pit bulls

TEXAS CITY, Texas (AP) — A Texas woman whose four pit bulls entered her neighbors’ yard through a hole in the fence and killed their 10-year-old beagle is suing them for $1 million.

Emerald White says in her lawsuit filed this week in Galveston County district court that she was “seriously injured” on Oct. 27 trying to stop the attack and retrieve her dogs. She says she suffered “multiple serious bite and scratch-type injuries” and accuses her neighbors of failing to securely confine and restrict their dog, Bailey.

Bailey’s owner, Steve Baker, told The Galveston County Daily News (http://bit.ly/1xrtxoU ) that everyone was telling him to sue White but that he didn’t because it wouldn’t bring Bailey back and the police declared her dogs dangerous.

The paper says White’s attorney didn’t respond to calls seeking comment.
