A man testified he gave his dog mouth-to-mouth resuscitation to save its life after it was attacked and nearly killed by a neighbor’s dog.
The dog owner, Kenneth Amonett, was in court Tuesday prosecuting his neighbor, John Brady, whose dog attacked his. General Sessions Judge Larry Ross found Brady guilty of allowing his dog to run at-large and assessed him a $10 fine plus court costs and directed him to make $40 restitution for veterinarian bills for his neighbor’s dog.
According to evidence in the case, Amonett said Brady’s pit bull chased his dog and caught the smaller animal in a ditch line in front of his house and bit it in several places. Amonett said his dog suffered numerous bite wounds and was barely breathing, perhaps from an injured throat when he found it, prompting him to attempt mouth-to-mouth resuscitation on the dog.
