HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV)-- In Virginia, this charge is a class six felony. This means offenders of it could face one to five years in prison.
In West Virginia, the law in place is a one-bite rule. This means that if the owner knows of an animal's potential to attack, and they attack, the owner can be charged, but with lesser charges than in the Commonwealth.
"Attempted murder with a dog as a weapon? Seems like he should get more," said Mark Baughan on Facebook.
