In the past weeks, we've covered the story of Huong Le, a 71-year-old SeaTac woman who was walking in her neighborhood when twp loose pit bulls attacked her in the street. She was rushed to the hospital with severe, life-threatening injuries that too 13 hours to treat and that still haunt her today. The two pit bulls were shot in the street after they would not leave the woman alone.

Tooday, KOMONews.com reports that the owner of the two pit bulls has pleaded not guilty to his felony charge related to the violent dog attack. The man, Travis Cunningham, is charged with the felony of possessing a dangerous dog. He has a criminal record dating back to 1993.

Cunningham has said that he was aware that his dogs were aggressive, but that he did not know that they could escape from his back yard. Neighbors and witnesses disagree, saying that the dogs had escaped from the yard many times before, due to a low fence and a gate with no working lock. Officials said that there was a partially-installed electric fence around the yard, but that it didn't work and it wasn't connected to power.

In addition, Cunningham was not supposed to have dogs in the yard according to his signed rental agreement.
