Edgartown selectmen set July 12, for a public hearing about a vicious dog complaint. Catherine Bonham filed a complaint saying she was bitten by a pit bull as she walked on Tarkiln Path, a Land Bank path along Boylston Drive. Kyle Byrne owns the dog. After investigating the incident, animal control officer Barbara Prada recommended to the selectmen that Mr. Byrne post a $100 bond for one year, order permanant restraint for the pit bull and another dog for the rest of the dogs' lives, and erect an escape proof fence around the property, to be inspected and approved by the animal control officer.
