A woman in Washington has filed a dog bite lawsuit against the owners of a West Virginia campground.
According to U.S. District Court for the Northern District of West Virginia documents, Jessica Barker filed the dog bite lawsuit against the owners of a Bruceton Mills, W.V. campground. The lawsuit names Christopher Ogden, Rebecca Ogden, Alyeska Inc., Big Bear Lake Country Store, Big Bear Lake Real Estate, Big Bear Lake Property Owners Association Inc., and Bear Foot springs as defendants.
According to the lawsuit, the Ogdens owned, leased and/or rented a site at the campground. Barker says the family owned a “vicious and dangerous dog.” The lawsuit claims the defendants knew that the dog was violent and that it had previously attacked and bitten, or attempted to attack and bite, other individuals at the campground.
“The dog was known by all Defendants to be aggressive and a danger to Plaintiff and the public,” the lawsuit alleges.
Barker was a guest at the campground on May 21, 2010 when she was attacked and severely bitten by the Ogdens’ dog, the lawsuit says. As a result of the attack, Barker claims she suffered severe permanent injuries, tissue loss to her right forearm, puncture wounds to her left calf, and severe emotional distress. She is seeking an unspecified amount in damages.
