One of Brian Goldfinger’s very first personal injury cases which drew media attention was a dog bite case out of Toronto.
This tragic case was covered by the Globe & Mail. The headline of the newspaper read “Man charged in fatal pitbull attack on dog“.
The dog attack took place a decade ago, and to their credit, the Globe & Mail article was updated on April 26, 2018 (responsible journalism); likely to include the following paragraph reflecting changes in the law surrounding pit bull ownership in Ontario:
“Pit bulls have been banned in Ontario since November, 2005. However, dogs that were in the province before the ban may be kept, provided the owner has them sterilized. They must be leashed and muzzled at all times when in public.”
