Lawsuit claims Riverhead did not disclose adopted pit bull's dogfighting background
A Farmingville woman is suing Riverhead after she was allegedly attacked by a pit bull she adopted at a town animal shelter.
Cassandra Cosgriff says her pit bull, Zen, attacked her inside her Farmingville home in February. Two years earlier, she adopted Zen from the Riverhead Town Animal Shelter. She says Zen had been a loving companion until the dog clamped on to her arm for 20 minutes.
