Dog bites can lead to minor or serious injuries, and sometimes even death. Dog owners, especially if they know their dog is aggressive and has bitten someone in the past, have an obligation to keep the dog contained or caged. Owners must train their dogs and control them to protect innocent victims. Scars and wounds from an animal attack do not just cause physical injuries, but they also leave the victim and their family with emotional issues that can haunt them for life.
As seen in this CBS2 story, a 5-year-old boy tragically was killed by a dog on Chicago’s South Side on May 25, 2015. The pit bull involved in the incident was not inoculated for rabies and did not have a city license. The child and his mother were visiting the home where the dog lived, and somehow the dog got loose and attacked the boy. Friends and neighbors were not able to stop the attack once it began.
