A few weeks ago, we wrote a post about the headline-grabbing fatal dog attack that occurred in late July here in Michigan. A jogger was killed when multiple dogs mauled him, and the owners were swiftly charged with murder. The owners had a reputation, as did their dogs, and now the case is currently at trial.
One of the stories that has emerged from the trial is a prior dog bite case involving the family in question and their dogs. A 73-year-old man was out walking when the dogs came charging down a hill and attacked the older man. He was bleeding and he immediately called the police -- but one of the dogs' owners came out and pleaded with the man not to call the police. In fact, the owner took it a step further. He tried to bribe the dog bite victim, offering the 73-year-old money to not call the police.
