|Buddy was Killed by a Pit Bull|
Animal control issued the 19-year-old owner with citations for dog at large, biting and attacking, and vicious behavior. An adjudication hearing was set for May 4.
Elgin passed the ordinance in 2010 creating the designation of dangerous dog when a hearing officer or court at the request of the police department conducts an evidentiary hearing on the temperament of a dog.
To date, 83 dogs have been designated as dangerous dogs and 13 as vicious, or dogs that have bitten a person or another dog, according to city records.
