Columbia Officials Investigate Dog Bite Case

Posted on November 20th, 2012 No Comments

Officials in Columbia, Missouri are currently investigating a dog bite case involving a 3-year-old girl and a German Shepard that occurred Tuesday night.

Boone County Animal Control officials are looking into the incident and have reported that the young girl pushed open the fence in a neighbor’s yard and the dog bit her on the nose and wrist.

The girl was then transported to the hospital in order to be treated for her injuries. She received stitches on her nose and a splint on her wrist, which was broken in the attack. Authorities have reported that they are trying to have the dog classified as a “viscous” animal.

An official with the Boone County/Columbia Animal Control stated that, “it’s a process that we can go through to get the dog classified as viscous, and if the director of the health department finds that the dog does warrant that particular charge, then there are things that owners would have to do to comply with that particular ordinance.”

The animal under investigation also bit a child in August. Investigators have been unsuccessful in getting a comment from the dog’s owner on the most recent attack. An updated report on the girl’s condition has not been given.

If your child has been injured by a viscous dog, you need representation on your side that can help you receive the compensation for your pain that you deserve. Contact the Michigan pet bite lawyers of Ravid & Associates, P.C., today.
