Dog Bite
Dog bites are dangerous, often causing major injury and even death. Sometimes even a small dog bite can result in major medical implications and personal injuries. Dogs carry many bacteria in their saliva, and sometimes common bacteria that's normally not a danger to us can result in major infections causing severe injury and death. Dog owners must maintain safe handling and proper training to help prevent dog bites upon humans.

Neighborhood group discusses dog bites, letter carriers | Wichita Eagle

Neighborhood group discusses dog bites, letter carriers | Wichita Eagle | Dog Bite | Scoop.it
About two dozen people attended a meeting Monday night to discuss Wichita’s problem with dog bites and attacks on letter carriers.
Dog Bite Lawyer's insight:

The best way to prevent dog bites is educating dog owners as well as the people coming in contact with them. By far that's easier said than done. Letter carriers have their own mind, and often decide on their own how to handle a dog. That's not always the best thing to do. Dog owners also have minds of their own, and often they are clueless to the proper training, handling and socialization of their pet dog. We believe the ultimate responsibility resides with the dog owner or owners. It's up to the dog owner to properly socialize his or her dog, train it, secure it and supervise it. Letter carriers best option is to ignore the dogs, do not look at them, do not reach down towards them, do not talk to them, and do not make sudden or erratic movements around them. If the carriers don't know what to do, then properly training them to do their job when dogs are present would be reasonable.

No charges filed in case of dog attack that killed toddler

No charges filed in case of dog attack that killed toddler | Dog Bite | Scoop.it
No charges will be filed in the case of a 4-year-old boy who died after he was attacked by several dogs.
Dog Bite Lawyer's insight:

So a 4 year old child is torn apart by three pit bulls and there are no charges? The child died, and the dogs were euthanized, but the owner of the dogs doesn't face any charges? This is why we want to educate dog owners about pet and child safety. The dog owner is responsible for his dogs actions, at least that's how it normally goes. We are advocated for child and pet safety. http://www.dogbitelawyersusa.com

Charges filed against Ponte Vedra woman in deadly pit bull attack

Charges filed against Ponte Vedra woman in deadly pit bull attack | Dog Bite | Scoop.it
The State Attorney's Office that covers St. Johns County has filed two criminal charges against a Ponte Vedra woman whose two pit bulls severely injured her next-door neighbor and killed her neighbor's dog.
Dog Bite Lawyer's insight:

Interesting case. Unfortunately this attack by a dangerous dog or dogs resulted in a small pet's death and a wounded woman. People need to understand they're responsible for their dog's actions. Not only does this case of dog attack and dog bite illustrate the necessity of criminally prosecuting, but also the strong necessity of a civil lawsuit. The dangerous dogs' owner needs to be held to account.

Dog Bite Lawyer's insight:

Tragic for the woman and her family. There are many different types of rare cases of bacteria causing massive illness and damage to an individual. It's always tragic and it shows just how vulnerable we are to bacteria, even today in this modern era.

Was 'Dog Bite' Really A Coyote Attack?

Was 'Dog Bite' Really A Coyote Attack? | Dog Bite | Scoop.it
A boy was bitten by an animal -- maybe a coyote -- in the city's South Austin neighborhood. CBS 2's Brad Edwards reports. (Was 'Dog Bite' Really A Coyote Attack?
Dog Bite Lawyer's insight:

It may seem outrageous to think this could have been a coyote attack, because many people often don't realize just how pervasive coyotes have become across the United States. Tell me where in the United States coyotes don't live. They're actually very common in rural areas, as most people would suspect, however, there's nothing to confine them to farm lands, woods, plains, and wilderness. Coyotes are well adjusted to living in suburban and city environments. Most people in the city may not even recognize when they're observing a coyote. My father and mother, who live in the suburbs of a major city, have had coyotes within a few feet of their back door, observing them during early evening hours before the sun sets. They're becoming much bolder and fearless of humans, which will result in more pets being attacked as well as people. In fact, coyotes are pack animals and have been observed sending a female in heat into areas near homes where pets are known to occupy. The female coyote is used as lure, once a male pet dog gives chase, the coyote pack ambushes and kills the dog for food. Pets disappearing in the suburbs is much more common than realized. While this tactic doesn't work on humans, and coyotes in general don't commonly hunt humans, there are cases where coyotes go after children. Where we live, which is a moderately rural farming area, we have rampant coyote populations. When we had out first child, we also added a couple of Chesapeak retrievers to our family. They grown up around our kids and are excellent protection for them. When the youngsters go out to play, they take the chessies with them.

$30K award in dog bite lawsuit

$30K award in dog bite lawsuit | Dog Bite | Scoop.it
The owner of a pit bull was ordered to pay $30,246 Monday in Lenawee County Circuit Court to a 5-year-old girl bitten in the face by the dog at Adrian’s Island Park in July 2012.
Dog Bite Lawyer's insight:

Congratulations on winning the lawsuit. I wonder did police file charges against the dog owner? Some people deny the association of dog bites and pit bulls, but the evidence is clear. Pit bulls account for many of fatal dog bites reported in the United States. I hope the victim is able to collect on that $30,246.00 she is owed.

Gang of Atlantic City officers and a Dog Brutally Attack a 20-Year Old Kid

Gang of Atlantic City officers and a Dog Brutally Attack a 20-Year Old Kid | Dog Bite | Scoop.it
Security cameras captured a disturbing video of a group of Atlantic City police officers assaulting a man, beating him mercilessly with blunt weapons, and finally siccing an attack dog on his neck ...
Dog Bite Lawyer's insight:

This beating and dog bite attack leaves little doubt that the victim needs a lawyer. His father is an attorney and will surely take all actions necessary to bring some financial relief to his son for the medical bills and life time injuries sustained from what appears to be overwhelming evidence of police violation of civil rights.

Coyote attacks on dogs prompt warnings

Coyote attacks on dogs prompt warnings | Dog Bite | Scoop.it
Two coyote attacks on dogs, minutes apart and on the same street, have local animal control officials urging pet owners to be watchful.
Dog Bite Lawyer's insight:

Coyotes going after pet dogs is much more common than most people realize, especially in suburban and city environments. While some dogs (pets) are easy prey, others make excellent protection. In this case, size does matter, as well as ability. We have a pair of chesapeake bay retrievers who are excellent for security and defense. Coyotes want nothing to do with them.
