Dogs are part of the American family. Most of us have neighbors or friends who consider themselves dog lovers, and you may even have a few dogs as pets yourself. But as lovable as “man’s best friend” can be, when a dog attacks, the outcome is anything but friendly. In just a few short moments, an aggressive dog can cause devastating injuries. They’ve even been known to kill human beings. Children, the elderly, and the disabled are at especially high risk.
An October 2018 WLWT reports “An 11-year-old boy was seriously injured in Price Hill after he was attacked on Oct. 9 by a large dog police described as a red pit bull mix”. The dog dragged the boy across the street by holding the boy’s leg. The media also mentioned that “The dog owners have been cited but the fate of the dog has not been determined”.
