Felony case to proceed in dog attack at Murrieta Lowe’s store

Gavel

The case involves the allegations that a man brought his Akita to the garden department at the Murrieta home improvement store in December, where a child sought to great the dog. Police say that the dog attacked the small child who needed 50 stitches to close the wounds.

In the recent criminal case against the dog owner, prosecutors say that the Akita that is believed to have attacked the boy in December has had prior incidents with children. The dog lunged at a child in October, scraping the 5-year-old child in the process. The dog again showed aggression toward a child in November at a Home Depot store. In the November incident, prosecutors say that the Akita bit a child on the elbow. Authorities say that the first two children did not suffer significant injuries.

Dog owners are responsible for the acts of the animals that cause injury. A victim (or family of a victim) may seek justice in civil court.
