Gary and Susan Kolb will have to wait longer to find out if the state is taking away their pet dog, after their attorney said he did not know of a key witness testifying, nj.com reported.
Jefferson Township seized both of the Kolb’s 100-pound African Boerbel dogs after the owners were indicted on a contempt charge for violating terms requiring both animals to be muzzled and leashed when out in public.
Since the trial has begun, one of the pet dogs has died.
The Kolb’s attorney, Robert Dunn, said he never heard of or was told that a neighbor, Steven Post, would be testifying in the case for the state, nj.com reported.
Dunn’s adjournment request was met, and the attorney said he will cross examine Post on Feb. 21 in Jefferson Municipal Court, the report said.
