CROSSVILLE, CUMBERLAND COUNTY TN - A RAMPAGING PIT BULL THAT BIT 3 PEOPLE IN A NEIGHBORHOOD HAS BEEN ORDERED TO BE PUT DOWN

Weds - April 18, 2012 - A   PIT  BULL    dog that witnesses claim went on a rampage, biting a least 3 people in a neighborhood in North cumberland County, sending at least 2 to the emergency room, has been ordered to be put down.

The attacks occurred in the Legion Loop area off Hwy. 127 N around March 18 when a woman walking in the neighborhood was attacked by the dog that had raced across two yards to reach her.  She ended up at the Cumberland Medical Center emergency room.

Another woman was more seriously injured when the dog attacked her while she was walking with her husband in the same neighborhood.  She was treated for injuries to her calf.

Officials found no record of the dog having shots, and as a result of complaints filed, Assistant District Attorney Amanda Hunter filed a petition with the court asking on behalf of the victims that the dog be destroyed.  The dog's owner ---MARISOL HERNANDEZ --- appeared in court for the hearing on March 29 and told Judge Patterson she would not oppose the dog being destroyed.   Then.........just as the proceeding was completed, deputies served Hernandez with a warrant signed by Cumberland County Commissioner Mike Harvel, who as a county employee oversees animal control.  HERNANDEZ was taken into temporary custody on a charge of allowing the dog to run at large.

After some negotiations between the district attorney's office and attorneys involved in the case, it was decided
TO RELEASE HERNANDEZ ON HER OWN RECOGNIZANCE ON HER PROMISE

                                 TO

RELOCATE  *****"ALL HER DOGS" *****TO A FARM OUTSIDE THE COMMUNITY WHERE THE DOG ATTACKS TOOK PLACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
