Emerald White Pit Bulls Killed Beagle: White Is Now Suing Dead ...

Emerald White pit bulls

Emerald White‘s pit bulls killed another dog, and now, the Texas woman is suing the owner. On October 27th, two pit bulls that belong to White ran to her neighbor’s yard via a hole in a fence between the properties.

White’s pit bulls brutally attacked and killed a 10-year-old beagle named Bailey owned by Steve Baker, his wife, and two daughters. Friends and family members advised Baker to sue White for the death of his beloved pet.

Baker told local media that he was not interested in dragging White to court because it would not bring Bailey back. The dog lover added that he was satisfy with the police’s decision to declare Emerald White’s pit bulls dangerous animals. Baker explained:

“The police took the action I wanted and declared those dogs dangerous and awareness was raised; so I decided to let it go.”

Last Wednesday, Baker was shocked when he was served with a lawsuit from White. The documents from the 405th District Court showed that White was asking $1 million in damages due to the injuries she sustained during the dog fight. According Emerald White’s lawyer, she was:

“seriously injured, when she entered the Baker’s yard. She was unexpectedly and viciously attacked as she tried to retrieve her dogs.”

White, who is the owner of four pit bulls, is asking a million dollars in order to pay for her medical bills after:

“sustaining multiple serious bite and scratch-type injuries rand for feeling conscious pain and suffering and now suffers also from fear anxiety and trepidation.”

Baker who is baffled by the lawsuit said:

“I couldn’t believe it.Now they’re suing me for $1 million — I just can’t believe it.”

In her million dollar suit, White also claimed that the Baker family failed to replace parts of the fence to be more secure. Baker claimed that he spoke to White about repairing his part of the fence, but never had any response.

Since the fatal attack, Emerald White’s pit bulls have been declared dangerous dogs by Texas City. The ordinance requires White to build a secure enclosure that is at least 6 feet high with a mechanical locking device.

She is also obligated to post a sign in her yard alerting residents of her dangerous dogs.
