Hopewell Twp. Dog Allegedly Attacks Neighborhood Pets
HOPEWELL (KDKA) — Some neighbors in Hopewell Township, Beaver County, are fuming over a man’s pet dog after it attacked at least three pets on the same street.
The most recent attack was on a poodle named Molly, owned by Eric Poznan. His dog was mauled and had to have stitches on her stomach after Peaches, an Akita, pounced on her.
It’s the second time one of Posnan’s dogs was attacked by the same Akita. A few months back, another one of Posnan’s dogs suffered a broken leg when the Akita went after her.
Neighbors, who say they are scared to walk their pets because of a string of attacks, complained to KDKA-TV that they’ve gone to Hopewell Township police and the local district magistrate, but nothing gets done.
The owner of the Akita, James Antonis, says the fear is much to do about nothing, even though he admits Peaches has attacked smaller dogs in the past after bolting out of the house through an open door.
Antonius says his dog is not dangerous to adults or children and the dog is now in training.
