Feb 28, 2008 Pit bull owner allowed declared dangrous pit to attack child

Danville – A city case against Bob Pape, owner of Pape Memorial Home & Gardens will go to trial.

Pape's pit bull dog allegedly snapped at a 2-year-old boy on Jan. 27 while the boy was attending a visitation for his grandfather at the funeral home. The dog, named Blue, typically accompanies Pape to work.

The dog had previously been declared dangerous. Since then, Pape has been required to keep the dog muzzled and leashed when not at home.

Pape said the dog was leashed but not muzzled when the incident occurred on Jan. 27.
