(AMERICAN FALLS, ID)  – An American Falls woman wants the dog who bit her son to be declared vicious. Katrina Evans tells Local News 8 that her 17-year-old son, Robert Odom, was bit by a pit bull-mastiff mix during a party July 5. Evans asked the city council to act, but authorities say it’s up to animal control or the police department to make a final decision. Council member Kurtis Workman says the incident occurred at a party where underage drinking was going on, and that police have concluded that the dog’s behavior doesn’t warrant further action against its owner.

    Surprisingly, your report does not mention the fact that this was a 260 pound, obese, probably drunk (under aged) teen. More surprising was the fact that the fat bully-boy did not cause the poor dog serious injury! If it had been a smaller dog, the dog could have been killed. Also, the dog was in a fenced yard and under a restraining device. Hold this boy and his family responsible.
