The County of Carbon, the county commissioners, and K-9 patrol/animal shelter have been named defendants in a civil lawsuit seeking damages by a former employee, whose minor child was bit by a dog at the shelter almost two years ago.
Robert Millard, of 38 E. Catawissa St., Nesquehoning, filed the suit on behalf of his minor daughter seeking damages in excess of $50,000 on each of four counts.
The suit states on Nov. 5, 2016, the minor child and her mother, Stephanie Millard, who was an employee of the shelter at the time but is no longer employed there, was at the shelter, located at 63 Broad St., Nesquehoning, which is property next county prison, and walking a pit bull dog named “Rover.”
The suit states while walking the dog, it “suddenly and without warning attacked” the minor child, biting her on the left arm and wrist, causing her to suffer injuries, which are detailed in the suit.
The plaintiffs alleged negligence against the defendants contending the defendants should “have known, that the pit bull named Rover was dangerous and had a propensity to charge and bite persons.”
A jury trial is sought.
