According to the Connecticut Post, 42 people across the country died as the result of a dog attack in 2014. While every event may not be preventable, there are steps that owners and others can take in order to avoid a dog bite.
In New Have, and elsewhere, regardless of the breed of dog a pet owner has, they have a responsibility to ensure that their pet is properly socialized so it will not attack or that it is safely enclosed in their home or yard. If a dog gets out and attacks someone, it can result in serious personal injury, which can have lasting effects. Often, the pain from dog bite injuries is not just physical; victims of animal attacks often have lasting emotional pain as well.
