The Los Alamos Magistrate Court recently sided with a North Mesa Stable owner over an issue that’s sure to come up again. In early May of this year, a dog, who was not on a leash, apparently attacked and injured a cat owned by one of the stable owners.
The cat’s owner, Cheryl Rosenberger, filed a lawsuit for medical expenses and court fees against the dog’s owner, Toby Kain.
Though Rosenberger won her case, she did not get back the $300 in medical fees because according to Judge Pat Casados, Rosenberger did not supply the necessary documentation supporting the medical bills.
“I’m going to give an award to the plaintiff, but only for the costs that I know occurred,” Casados said.
Rosenberger said this case never would have happened if Kain had been more conciliatory about the attack.
“Just control your dogs and have a little bit more respect for other people. That’s what it comes down to,” Rosenberger said. “If he came up to me and said ‘I’m sorry I know my dog did it...’ The fact that he threw a big fit, made points and harassed my family I don’t need it,” Rosenberger said.
