The Haddonfield doctor whose Rhodesian Ridgeback dogs have landed him in court multiple times has agreed to move one of the animals out of town.
Duke, who attacked a 4-year-old girl in Salem County last year, will not reside in the borough until court proceedings are held to decide what should be done with the animal, Haddonfield Commissioner Ed Borden said Friday. One possibility is that the court could order Duke to be put down.
In a tentative deal agreed to by the borough and dog owner Bob Taffet two weeks ago, the family will keep no more than two dogs in its Camden County home. The Taffets also will extend a four-foot wrought-iron fence around the perimeter of the property.
