9:55 AM PT — The smaller dog’s owner tells us Henry and his team only offered to pay her vet bills after she posted about the incident on Instagram … she says her emails to him were initially ignored for several days.
Henry Golding‘s fostered pit bull mauled another pooch in a park — causing a trip to the vet and staples — but the actor is now stepping up to cover the injured pooch’s bills.
Here’s the deal … the “Crazy Rich Asians” star is fostering a pit bull named Stella during the coronavirus pandemic, and last week Henry brought her to Pan Pacific Park in Los Angeles, where all hell broke loose.
We’re told Stella attacked a smaller pup while the dogs were running around, picking the pooch up by the neck and causing a large gash that required several hours at an animal hospital. The hurt pup needed 6 staples, but will survive.
The owner of the smaller dog tells us she spoke to a police officer who was at the park, but the cops couldn’t do anything and told her the incident needed to be resolved between the 2 parties. We’re also told Henry’s dog was on a leash, and the smaller pooch was not.
We’re told Henry gave the other dog’s owner an email, and both parties have been in communication. A Source close to Henry tells us he’s offered to pay the medical bills.
