Re: As property owners, can we be held liable?

I *think* (I'm not a lawyer) that he'd have to prove that you (owners of the land) knew the dog was dangerous or you were taking care of the dog. Since I'm assuming you didn't know, it's not your problem.

ETA: http://www.nolo.com/legal-encycloped...hapter4-7.html Pretty much what I thought. You could be held responsible in theory though if the dog bites again now that you know it's a threat.
