A judge allows a pit bull to have its own attorney in a mauling case. A Pit Bull that attacked a five year old boy is having its day in court, but not without proper legal council. The Effingham County Superior Court judge has appointed a lawyer for the offending canine, and its owners. The dog, named Kno, attacked five year old Wesley Frye while he was playing with a friend inside of his neighbors home. One of Kno’s owners was able to intervene and bring the dog outside. Frye sustained serious injuries and has had to undergo two surgeries since being attacked by the dog. Effingham County Sheriff’s Office spokesman David Ehsanipoor said Frye “is improving and is better. He still has scarring and the right side of his face is paralyzed.” There are historical records of legal prosecutions of animals, for example, according to the Wall Street Journal, a book published in 1906 describes a case from 1519 in Italy where field mice were tried for damaging crops. The defender appointed to represent the mice requested they to be allowed to depart with “safe passage from dogs, cats, or other foe.” Do you think the Pit Bull should be euthanized?
