A judge has ruled that a Concord, New York, family's pit bull, known as Chunk, will get a reprieve, at least for now.
The 4-year-old Pit bull will return home temporarily. The judge says the dog will then need to be returned to a kennel by Friday for further evaluation and a future assessment will be scheduled.
Chunk was removed from the Wilk family's home about a month ago, after he bit a letter carrier. Chunk's owner, Jacqueline Wilk, says the dog was leashed up outside at the time, and that the U.S. Postal Service worker came into the dog's space. 7 Eyewitness News reached out a number of times to the letter carrier to hear her side, but our calls were not returned.
A petition to save Chunk on change.org received more than 30,000 signatures.
