A utility meter reader alleging he was attacked by a pack of dogs is suing the animals' owners.

Edward Clontz filed suit against Beverly Hood and Gregory Rosenberger on Jan. 21 in Jefferson County District Court.

According to the plaintiff's petition, on April 29 Clontz was reading a utility meter at 5325 Landry Lane in Beaumont when a pack of dogs attacked him.

"The defendants failed to keep dogs properly restrained," the suit states. "Defendants were aware, or should have been aware, of the dangerous propensities of the dogs."

Clontz is suing for his alleged past and future medical expenses, mental anguish, pain, impairment, disfigurement and lost wages.

Beaumont attorney Anthony Malley III of the Moore Landrey law firm represents him.

Judge Bob Wortham, 58th District Court, has been assigned to the case.

Case No. A189-210
