Cheltenham dangerous dogs injunction approved by county – Glenside News Globe Times Chronicle – Montgomery News

The Montgomery County Court of Common Pleas ruled in favor of Cheltenham Township regarding a situation in which two dangerous dogs had been attacking people in the area of Ashbourne and Rolling Green roads, township Solicitor Joseph Bagley said June 19.

The dogs have been ordered to be removed from the township, he said.

Bagley updated the Cheltenham Township Board of Commissioners about the situation at the June 18 legislative meeting. At the meeting, he explained that at a June 17 court hearing, he introduced witness testimony and exhibits on behalf of the township before Judge Bernard Moore. Resident Miguel Burgos, of the 600 block of Ashbourne Road, whose name was listed on the official injunction, testified on his own behalf regarding his dogs, Bagley said.

At the end of the hearing, Bagley requested that an injunction be issued against Burgos that would remove his dogs from the township, he explained to the board.

Burgos’ dogs, which are a male pitbull and a female American bulldog, were accused of scratching a neighbor who was passing by with his dog, scratching a 12-year-old boy while he was standing at his bus stop, chasing a woman who was walking her dog and other incidences, Bagley explained.

The evidence showed the dogs were going under the fence on the property, jumping over the fence and pushing through the gate on the property, Bagley said.

These events were brought to the commissioners’ attention after several residents complained at a public safety meeting June 11, he said.

Prior to going to court, four citations were issued against Burgos, two for each dog, by Cheltenham police, Bagley said.
