Dog Attacks-Three Times Higher In Deprived Areas

Share

Here is a story from England about Dog Attacks in areas that are deprived.

“The number of dog bites leading to hospital admission is three times higher among people living in the deprived areas study from Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) has revealed.

Hospital admissions for dog attacks are three times higher in deprived area than affluent regions in England.

According to the report, there were 6,743 hospital admissions specifically by dog attacks, a 5.8% increase from the 6,372 admissions last year.”

Dr Simon Harding, a lecturer in criminology at the University of Middlesex said: “Deprived areas are often more populous with larger families, more children, more pets and more people living in closer proximity to each other and dogs. Also dogs tend to be exercised in public, rather than in gardens or remote fields. At the same time people in poorer areas use dogs for protection, instead of alarms or house insurance and there is an underlying trend towards the use of aggressive Pit Bull-type breeds as weapon or status dogs.”

Dog Attack Kills Toddler/Grandma

Share

Here’s a story from the Fox affiliate in Phoenix, Arizona about Dog Attacks.

A family there suffered a terrible tragedy when their nine-month-old baby was mauled by their pet dog-an Akita. The mother left the baby in the family room for a few minutes when the Akita knocked down a gate and went after the child. The dog apparently has a history of violence attacking both the older sister and the infant’s mother.

An official noted that it is not uncommon to keep dogs that have violent history but that all dogs matter how long they’ve been part of the family can turn on you an attack.

Recently in Arizona, a 77-year-old woman was attacked while she was giving medicine to a dog that had been with the family for years. She subsequently died.

Giving a dog plenty of exercise and training — and doing this from the time they are puppies will help prevent attacks, no matter what breed of dog.

Dog Attacks-New Opinion

Share

Here is an editorial written by a concerned citizen about her observations in people’s attitudes when out walking dogs, riding their bikes or just out through daily exercise.

You can read the whole opinion piece HERE.

Her observations are that people are arming themselves with pepper spray, sticks, stun guns, wasp spray or anything else they can use if there dog was attacked by an aggressive dog or if they are attacked.

The fact is, there is no excuse for a dog to be aggressive. An aggressive dog is an aggressive dog, period; end of story. It’s like going to any self-help group and taking the first step by admitting that you have a problem. That done, the next step is getting help, and there is help for you and your aggressive dog.

“The number one thing any dog owner must do is keep your dog on a leash! This goes for every dog, friendly or not. This is for their safety and yours, as well as the community. There is a leash law and for good reason; please adhere to it for the safety of all involved. I will admit that I have been remiss at times with my own dogs on this, but have amended my ways with a renewed, and vigilant attitude.

Let me say again that there are no excuses for an aggressive dog. You can’t take back the damage that your dog has done after the fact. There is documented proof that the dog who is the victim of a dog attack will become dog aggressive themselves for survival sake. I can’t blame them but this can become a snowball effect, with our beautiful and safe community to take the brunt of it. Take responsibility for your dog by being a responsible owner.”

In the United States over 5 million people are attacked by dogs every year and 1 million of them need treatment at a hospital. That equates to a huge cost, both in time and money. Insurance companies are going crazy paying out claims against homeowners. But the biggest thing is that people are afraid of dogs and for good reason.

They hesitate to go out walking, cycling or jogging anymore because of the fear of dog attacks. But it needn’t be that way if they arm themselves with a good self-defense product such as the Mace Pepper Gun or the Sabre Protector Dog Spray.

Scotland Dog Attacks Double

Share

Here’s a story from the daily record in the United Kingdom, which reports the number of Dog Attacks in Scotland where most victims requiring hospital treatment has doubled in the last 15 years. Most of the victims are children, leaving citizens screaming for action.

“The daily record newspaper called on the Scottish Government to take action after a spate of horrific attacks on children.”

The newspaper campaign is calling for:

1. The return of dog licensing, with stringent suitability tests for prospective dog owners.

2. Dog wardens to police the new system, funded through the cost of the license.

3. Mandatory micro-chipping of all dogs to keep proper track of all animals to encourage responsible ownership.

Dog attacks and dog bites are not just a problem in the United States where over 5 million people are attacked every year and close to 1 million of them requiring hospitalization.

What Are Dog Owner’s Responsibilities In An Attack?

Share

Here’s a letter to the editor that was published in the Baltimore Sun recently about dog attacks. It focuses on dog owner’s responsibilities not dog owner’s rights.

Read the whole story HERE.

The author is the mother of a boy who was attacked six years ago by a pitbull and who’s case led to a decision by a Maryland court that pit bulls are inherently dangerous.

She asks these questions in her letter.

1. “How will dog owners pay for catastrophic injuries caused by their dogs? Homeowners insurance is not required by law, it is required of homeowners by mortgage lenders. Renters can go uninsured.

2. The animal advocates say the largest portion of their shelter space is pit bulls and the greater share of their placement in foster homes are to renters. Any new law must consider the feasibility of a victim being able to gain a recovery.

3. Returning to common law with pit bulls and other dogs means a dog bite victim must prove negligence. The animal lobby says dog behavior is the dog owner’s fault, so then a dog bite itself should be evidence of negligence. Like them or not, muzzles are always available to dog owners, or they can choose a less dangerous breed to mitigate the risk of bites.”

Every year over 5 million Americans are attacked by a dog and bitten. Of those nearly 1,000,000 require hospitalization with the vast majority of them being children.

The best thing is to avoid dogs altogether. Unfortunately for millions of Americans who love to get their exercise in the great outdoors by walking, jogging or cycling that just doesn’t seem feasible. The second best thing to do is to arm yourself with a self-defense product that can protect you against a dog attack and prevent you from getting bitten.

We have found that this Sabre Dog Pepper Spray has an effective range up to 15 feet and will improve your confidence and peace of mind while walking outdoors.

In the tiny island nation of Bermuda, according to statistics over the last two years, 59.45% of reported cases of dogs biting people were attributed to pitbulls.

Here in the United States, as far as we know, there has never been a similar study. Anecdotal evidence indicates that the same result would occur. Pitbulls, unfortunately or not, have a reputation for being particularly vicious. Every year 5 million Americans get bitten by dogs with over 1 million of them requiring hospitalization.

Family Dog Attacks Volunteer

Share

The New Zealand SPCA is reviewing its procedures around dogs after a volunteer was mauled by a “family” dog that had shown no hint of aggression until it attacked.

The experienced volunteer, known as Paula, was with the dog, a 5-year-old Border collie, and two smaller dogs in a pen last Friday when something caused the dog to attack.

“There were absolutely no indications of aggression or risk with this dog. We’ve reviewed all the history – from the moment it was dropped off and its journey in the SPCA – and, in fact, this dog showed no issues whatsoever,” Auckland SPCA chief executive Christine Kalin said.

But then last week it attacked Paula, aged in her 40s, leaving her with several wounds on her legs and an arm.

SPCA was now reviewing its procedures around dogs, although it may never be known what set the dog off.

This story is just further evidence that dogs are wild animals and as such an attack anyone, anytime, anyplace.

The best way you can defend against the dog attack is with the self-defense product such as this Sabre brand Protector Dog Spray that contains as many as 25 short bursts up to 15 feet away.

Nebraska Dog Bites Have Strict Liability

Share

In Nebraska, dog owners are liable for any and all damages to anyone except a trespasser under a statutory strict liability.

Nebraska law sets forth dog bite liability. As dogs are personal property for all intents and purposes, the owner of a dog is liable for any and all damages that could accrue (1) to any person other than a trespasser by reason of having been bitten by such dog or dogs and (2) to any person, firm, or corporation by reason of such dog or dogs killing, wounding, injuring, worrying or chasing any person or persons or any sheep or other domestic animals belonging to such person. Owners become strictly liable for the actions of their dogs.

The rest of the story is HERE.

Nebraska’s strict liability statute on dog attacks and dog bites allows for recovery for damages without a showing of negligence on the part of the owner. If you have been bitten by a dog, make sure you file a dog bite report with the Nebraska Humane Society.

Dog Attack Makes Walk In The Park A Scary Situation

Share

A walk in the park with her dog turned into a nightmare for Dunedin woman Sonia McGregor after her dog Ali was attacked by another dog.

Soon after Ali had been let off his leash to run around Kettle Park, a dog, which looked like a pit bull, ran from the other side of the field and started biting Ali’s neck, she said.

At first the owner of the pit bull thought it was playing with Ali but soon realised it was worse when Mrs McGregor tried to pry the dog off.

The rest of the story is HERE.

“At first I didn’t know what to do and then I started hitting the dog but I was worried about my hands . . . It was very scary,” she said.

People with potentially dangerous dogs needed to consider others before letting their dogs off a leash.

”I’m not sure if he gave me the wrong number or in the heat of the moment I wrote it down wrong.”

Mrs McGregor had not contacted the Dunedin City Council but said she would soon.

Dunedin South Veterinary Clinic veterinarian Alistair Newbould said there had been a spate of animals coming to the clinic suffering from dog bites in the last month but it was not unusual.

”Usually, if a dog has bitten another dog or animal, they are likely to have done it before or do it again,” he said.
When an animal is bitten by a dog it should be taken to a veterinary clinic immediately because of the danger of infection, he said.

We like this Sabre Dog Spray because it has a longer range than the Mace brand dog spray and it is slightly more powerful so it has a better chance at repelling dogs.

Dog Attacks: Romania’s Plan to Shoot Thousands of Street Dogs Delayed

Share

Following the recent death of a 4-year-old boy who was attacked by street dogs in Bucharest, the Romanian parliament passed a law last week to allow dogs in public areas to be killed if they are not claimed or adopted within two weeks.

It is estimated that more than 60,000 stray dogs roam the streets of the capital city. Dozens of bites to humans are reported daily and tourism has been negatively impacted. The death of the little boy was merely the trigger that brought hundreds of protesters into the streets demanding government action to stop the attacks.

However, on Monday legislators from all parties joined to file a challenge and delay the order in Romania’s highest court, Reuters reports.

“We have to avoid reacting en-masse through collective killing …we don’t want to see tens of thousands of corpses, “Haralambie Vochitoiu, one of the lawmakers, told Agerpres, the state news agency.

We know of no city in the United States that has 60,000 stray dogs running around. Not sure we would ever let things get that bad, but dog attacks and dog bites affect literally millions of Americans every year.

Dog Attacks Are Because Of Owners Not Dogs

Share

There was an opinion piece recently in the Baltimore Sun that made the argument that dog attacks are not the fault of dogs but the fault of their owners. Not sure I buy that but here’s part of what the opinion piece had to say

“If reader Tom Paxton were actually a lifelong animal lover, he would understand that all dogs are “potentially dangerous” (“Pit bull compromise deserved to fail,” April 15).

All dogs have teeth. All dogs, given their breeding and life experience, can be problematic — or wonderful.

I’ve been a professional dog trainer for decades. Mr. Paxton says the owner of a dog that bit him treated her pit bull “like a poodle.” I’ve been threatened (more often than bitten, thanks to dog-smarts and good reflexes) by every breed in existence.”

Over 1000 people every day get hospitalized by dog attacks in the United States. Many of them are small children.

We heartily recommend the Mace Pepper Gun because it has range of 25 feet which makes it longer than any other self-defense product. And if you know anything about dogs and how fast they can run, a medium-size dog can cover 10 or 15 feet in the blink of an eye.

Letter carriers are all issued pepper sprays to defend themselves against dog attacks. But this letter carrier didn’t have one or didn’t know how to use it.

This Protector Dog Spray from Sabre brand has an effective range of 15 feet which is far more than competing brands. To me that makes it much more effective because a dog can travel 10 feet in a split second. It has a 48 month shelf life which is one third longer than most competing brands.
