Dog bite reports increased in Genesee County

Posted on March 1st, 2013 No Comments

The Animal Control Department in Genesee County recently released documents stating that the number of dog bites reported increased from 2011 to 2012.

According to Chief Officer of the Animal Control Department Walt Rodabaugh, dog bite reports increased by 28 percent to 745 reported cases last year compared to 2011, during which there were only 580 reported cases. The increase of dog bite reports was largely accounted to better reporting being done by medical institutions that track and treat dog bites. It is required by the state health code to report any animal bites to the public health agency within 24 hours with information regarding where the bite occurred, address of the victim, and what animal bit the victim.

Reporting is the key to identifying animals, including domesticated ones, that may have rabies, according to the state of Department of Agriculture and Rural Development.
