Man charged for “keeping un-muzzled ferocious dog at large”

The three dogs attacked and killed a $1,500 pit bull

Brian Castillo, 50, was charged for the offence of keeping an un-muzzled ferocious dog at large.

Castillo, an engineer of Lords Bank village, appeared in court on Friday, April 26, and was granted bail in the sum of $1,000, which he was able to meet. He is to return to court on June 4, 2013.

On Sunday, April 21, 2013, Castillo’s neighbor, a 48-year-old woman of Lords Bank, reported to Ladyville police that around 10:30 a.m. on that date, while she was at home, Castillo’s three dogs went into her yard and killed her four-year-old pit bull dog, which was tied in the yard.

The woman said that her dog was worth $1,500. She reported that she tried to stop the dogs from attacking her dog, but her attempts were fruitless. She added that it was not the first time Castillo’s dogs have strayed out of their yard.
