As a Fort Worth Dog Bite Attorney I am providing this Christmas dog bite story.
According to City of Fort Worth officials, a Fort Worth man is accused of owning a pit bull that is involved in an attack on an elderly man in July. Steven Woods, could owe thousands in outstanding tickets stemming from incidents between April and June.
“There are four incidents with Mr. Woods and his dogs,” said Brandon Bennett, the city’s director of code compliance. “Over a three-month period, his dogs terrorized a neighborhood.”
In November, a municipal court judge ruled that Woods’ dog Mimi was a dangerous dog, a case arising from an attack on an 84-year-old man in July.
According to a police report in April, Woods was issued nine tickets for three pit bulls that were running loose in his southeast Fort Worth neighborhood,
A June incident was far more serious. A 64-year-old woman was attacked by four pit bulls, including one that bit her repeatedly. The woman, who was seriously injured, said that Woods came outside and kicked one of the dogs to stop the attack.
The city’s Animal Care and Control division said Woods refused to cooperate with demands to quarantine the dogs.
