Hero Cat Family Won't Sue Neighbors; Dog to Be Put Down After Attack

by at . Comments

The owners of the dog that mauled the boy saved by his cat must be nice people. Same goes for the owners of Hero Cat, because there will be no lawsuits.

Despite the vicious attack that took place before their cat saved the boy from the dog, Jeremy Triantafilo's parents are not seeking any financial compensation.

Erica and Roger Triantafilo say their insurance will cover almost all of Jeremy's medical bill, so the only thing they want from the dog owners is the $155 deductible.

Beyond that check? Let bygones be bygones.

The attack by the neighbor's dog, who ripped Jeremy off his bike, could've become a wrongful death case were it not for Tara, who chased the assailant away.

Even so, the four-year-old suffered serious injuries from the takedown, and Erica too sustained a bite on the leg as she tried to save her son from the dog.

Yet Erica says her family is not looking to punish their neighbors. In fact, she says they remain friendly and do not blame them for the animal's behavior.

The dog, meanwhile, will be put down ASAP.
