Pot Garden Watchdogs Blamed for Mauling

     REDDING, Calif. (CN) – Vicious Rottweilers guarding a Northern California marijuana garden got loose and mauled a neighbor and his son, the family claims in court.
     Michael Souza and Michael Souza Jr., of Shasta Lake City, sued Charles Mitchell-William, Dena Landon, Russell Landon and Hess Property Management, in Shasta County Court.
     The Souzas claim that Mitchell-William and the Landons kept two Rottweilers on their property, which were “trained guard/attack dogs and said dogs guarded marijuana being grown on said property.”
     They claim that “one or more” of the Rottweilers got loose on July 6, 2013 and came onto their property and attacked and mauled their dog. In trying to save their dog, the Rottweilers “attacked, mauled and bit plaintiffs multiple times, causing serious injuries,” the Souzas claim in the lawsuit.
     They seek damages for liability and negligence.
     They are represented by Richard Dalrymple III, with the Law Offices of Larry S. Buckley, in Chico.
