Don't allow a dangerous dog to be re-homed into an unsuspecting community - just say NO to Kno!

In a misguided effort at “justice for all”, one Georgia County is contemplating “solving his problem” by moving it from Georgia to South Kortright, NY.  On 7/24/12 a pit bull named Kno savagely mauled 5 year old Wesley Frye on while the child was playing with another child inside a neighbor’s home in the Paddleford Subdivision.  Frye’s injuries were severe and he underwent two surgeries shortly after the attack. Though left with disfiguring scars and a paralyzed right side of his face, Wesley survived the attack… others are not so fortunate.  In the 8-year period from 2005 to 2012, pit bulls killed 151 Americans, about one citizen every 19 days.  In the 3-year period of 2006 to 2008, 18% of all fatal dog attacks occurred off owner property. Pit bulls were responsible for 81% of these attacks.  (info taken from http://www.dogsbite.org/dog-bite-statistics-quick-statistics.php)

I am Wesley’s Mom, and I am starting this petition so that no other Mom has to get the horrible call saying that your child has been severely injured.   I don’t want any Dad to wonder how the family is going to pay for the medical bills that are piling up.  I don’t want any other CHILD to be physically or emotionally scarred by such an attack!

Our case goes before Judge Woodrum on July 30, 2013.  The owners of the dog in question signed him over to the county to be euthanized immediately after the attack.  In a “comedy of errors”, this was not done. That is our only request – that this dog not be allowed to do this to someone else.  Please help us protect others by signing now and sharing with your friends.
