Dog owner says attack not ‘big deal’

From The Chronicle-Telegram

Police say a Bell Avenue man told them it “wasn’t a big deal” after his pit bull was accused of attacking a neighbor’s dog Sunday. When officers arrived to the home of Donald R. Battiste, the man admitted that his dog got loose earlier and went toward his neighbor’s house.
“Mr. Battiste stated that dogs are dogs and that it wasn’t a big deal,” according to the police report.
The victim dog, also a pit bull, had blood dripping from its muzzle and chest area, according to the report.
Battiste, 60, could not pro­vide proof of insurance for owning a pit bull, which is a requirement under Ohio law, and was charged with not hav­ing the insurance.
