City lawsuit seeks to have dog accused of attacks put down PDF Print E-mail

Port couple’s pet bit man, animal in west-side neighborhood, suit says

    Port Washington officials are asking a judge to order a couple’s dog be euthanized, saying it seriously injured a man visiting the family’s west-side neighborhood late last year and previously bit another dog.

    The civil case, filed Monday in Ozaukee County Circuit Court against dog owners Allyn and Tina Schoenfeld of Woodland Avenue, outlines two incidents during the past 1-1/2 years in which the dog attacked and threatened people and other dogs.

    “It’s my understanding the neighborhood is in fear of the dog,” City Attorney Eric Eberhardt said. “It’s just an aggressive dog. It’s a threat to public safety and a public nuisance.

    “The immediate removal of the dog in the interest of public safety is the city’s goal. Euthanization is a last resort, not a first choice. Euthanization will be the choice of the owner or a determination of the court.”
