Palatine bans two pit bulls accused of biting dog
Two pit bulls have been permanently banned from Palatine, according to an agreed order of the village's Animal Safety Commission.
Village attorney Patrick Brankin said the two dogs bit another dog Dec. 28 near Palatine High School, necessitating involvement by the village's animal control unit.
The commission held a hearing Thursday and found owner Jerome Balcer, of the 1000 block of East Olde Virginia Road, voluntarily relocated the dogs, named Lancelot and Guinevere, to an out-of-state trainer.
Balcer still faces potential fines and citations, which will be determined April 17 at an administrative department hearing, Brankin said. Balcer couldn't be reached for comment Thursday.
