The attack was not on a human, or another dog, but on livestock. According to NFL.com and the Green Bay Press-Gazette, Benson’s dogs attacked and bit seventeen of his neighbors calves. According to a family member of Benson’s neighbors, the animals suffered “very deep wounds and possibly tendon damage.” The police report included an evaluation from the veterinarian who examined the calves on Dec. 20. He “feels some may not make it through their injuries.” A local ordinance prohibits animals from running at large. Benson was charged with a second violation of the ordinance on Jan. 13 when neighbors complained of the dogs running through the neighborhood. Deputies reported Benson admitted to “having a hard time keeping them contained.” While I am sure the neighbors do not find this funny, I find it hilarious. If the calves are still alive, I am not sure how they will win the case, but then again nothing will cease to amaze me anymore when it comes to the American legal system.
