|Frankfort IL doesn't need pit bulls|
In the complaint, which was filed recently in Will County, Sarah Fazzini claims she was "viciously" attacked by the pit bull at the shelter in July of 2017 while she was dropping off dog food and other items, the report stated. The pit bull allegedly bit her right hand and injured it to the point that it still causes her pain and will continue to do so in the future, the report added.
Fazzini alleges that she did not provoke the attack, and her lawsuit cites Illinois law that holds a dog owner responsible if the animal bites or attacks someone without provocation, the report stated. The shelter and Fazzini's lawyer did not return the Southtown's messages for comments.
