INDEPENDENCE, Mo. -- A Kansas City-area man who was almost killed in an attack by two marauding pit bulls has been awarded more than $7 million.

Jackson County Circuit Judge Vernon Scoville ruled Tuesday that the dogs' owner and several other defendants should have known that the dogs were vicious and prone to attack.

Alan L. Hill suffered severe injuries and nearly died after he was attacked on May 4, 2006, while mowing a vacant lot he owned in Independence. He spent more than a month on a feeding tube.

Scoville ruled that the attack left Hill with permanent disfiguring and disabling injuries.

The Lawsuit named the couple who owned the property the pit bulls escaped from, the owner of the dogs and a handyman previously convicted of criminal charges in the case.

Good, it's about time they started holding owners accountible. Doesn't really matter if they were really pit bulls or not.

I'm going to make a statement completely based on a broad generalization here, but....

I'm betting the owners of these dogs don't have anywhere near $7 million.

I'm betting the owners of most dogs don't have anywhere near $7 million.

Or even 7K.

True.

But these owners especially.
I live in Independence, and though this little town gets a bad rap, I typically see only one type of person walking their pit down the street, or having it chained to the couch in the front yard.
That's all I'm saying.

at the most they probably have 100k in liability cover through the insurance

The owners of the property probably have a few bucks though.

I just read where some country in Europe, maybe Denmark, just lifted their ban on pit bulls after 25 years because it was in-effective.

They should ban Bonds though.
