The loss of a child in any circumstance is tragic and devastating to their parents, friends, and family. A child killed due to preventable circumstances becomes even more so. In Fulton County, they contract their animal services out to a company by the name of LifeLine Animal Project and this includes the enforcement of capturing and taking strays off the streets. 11 Alive reports on a family suing LifeLine Animal Project claiming they did not do their job and this led directly to the death of their son.
It has been almost a year since the gruesome attack that led to the death of 6-year-old Logan Braatz and the injury of another child as they walked to a school bus stop.
Chaperones managed to fight off what is described as a pack of “dangerous and vicious” dogs. Braatz ran to hide in an abandoned nearby home and was found by first responders with bites to his throat and face and in cardiac arrest. Unfortunately, Braatz succumbed to his injuries.
5-year-old Syrai Sanders also sustained serious injuries in the attack but she survived to be released from the hospital several weeks later.
Now, Logan’s mother, Angeline Braatz, has filed a lawsuit against LifeLine Animal Project alleging that their inaction was the primary cause of her son’s death.
The suit alleges that in the days previous to Logan’s death, there was a known issue with the roaming pack of dogs and that other residents had been attacked. The suit further alleges that residents had used multiple forms of contact to make Fulton County aware of the problem and that there is no reason that LifeLine should have been unaware.
Lifeline is accused in the suit of common law negligence, breach of contract, vicarious liability and other concerns.
