Danville, KY asked in Animal / Dog Law, Landlord - Tenant and Personal Injury for Kentucky

Q: A neighbor brought her unleashed, uncollared, and on a known dangerous dog list, over into my yard. The landlord knew.

I told the landlord of this mobile home park that the pitbull had moved in next door. She said she'd check into it and get back to me. One month later, the dog was in my yard and attacked my tiny dog, attacked me, and killed my dog which was right at my feet. Not an apology or even paying me for my bloody clothes, vet and cremation bills was offered. What can I do? This happened May 8, 2000. The Lincoln Co. attorney, Day, wouldn't handle it nor even talk with me. What can I do?
