A woman claiming she was bitten by a dog at the Will County Humane Society has sued the Shorewood shelter.

Kimberly Perez filed her lawsuit in Will County court.

The lawsuit said Perez was "peacable (sic) conducting herself" at the shelter when a dog named Uno "attacked, bit, and injured her," the lawsuit said.

The attack by Uno left Perez "sick, sore, lame and disordered," the lawsuit said, and she "has lost and will continue to lose great gains she otherwise would have made and acquired."

The humane society was at fault for allowing Perez "to be contained in a confined kennel with said dog when it knew or should have known of the dangerous and vicious propensity of the dog to attack," among other reasons, according to the lawsuit.

I think the dog should be treated for being subjected to a vicious human and should be medicated as such. I have been there. Those are dogs are watched and supervised. There is a brand new pavilion a boy scout just orchestrated getting donated. Maybe this broad thinks there is REAL money if new things can pop up. Really, the DOGS should be asked whose allowed to view them.
