Dogs Attack Riverside Woman in Front of her Home

Comments Off

In a case nearly identical to one Walton Barber had last year, a Riverside woman was attacked by two Rottweiler dogs in front of her Eastvale home. The woman suffered severe personal injuries, including puncture wounds, lacerations, and a broken arm that requires surgery.

It is unclear how the dogs escaped from their yard, but their owner, who had recently moved from Orange County to Riverside, was dropping his children off at school at the time of the attack. According to reports, the owner expressed remorse about the attack, and promptly handed the dogs over to authorities, who euthanized them.

Walton Barber had a nearly identical case last year when two bulldogs attacked an elderly woman walking her own dog. The woman suffered several puncture wounds, as well as a broken arm. A lawsuit was filed against the owners of the dogs, and a substantial settlement was obtained.
