A few months ago, Vanessa Carlton was bitten on the leg by a pit bull while she was jogging. She suffered five puncture wounds to her leg and was treated at a hospital. She filed a complaint against the owner of the dog and the case went to trial this week. If the dog owner lost, then the dog would be put to sleep.
Well, the owner went to great lengths to prove his 9 month old puppy did not cause the bites. The owner hired experts in dog dentistry, forensics and also dog behavior specialists who all said the dog could not have bitten Vanessa Carlton despite what she thinks she saw.
A judge agreed and the charges were dropped. Vanessa attended the trial and testified but it did not help.
