The criminal case against the owners of two dogs that attacked a man will go to the Lubbock District Attorney Wednesday. Animal Services Director Kevin Overstreet says he will present his investigation to the DA's office Wednesday. If charges are filed against the owners it will be the first case of its kind here in Lubbock.
On September 30th, these two dogs attacked 77-year-old William Cox in his back yard after they killed Cox's blind rat terrier. The two pitt bulls were expected to be put down last Friday but Animal Services has not been able to contact the owners by mail or in person. William Cox says the owners should be held accountable.
Under a new state law, the owners could be sent to jail for the attack. If charges are filed against the owners, they could face a 3rd degree felony, which is punishable by up to ten years in prison.
