Dog Killed After It Injures Small Child

Posted on October 25th, 2012 No Comments

In Stockbridge Township, Michigan, a young child was attacked by an unrestrained canine last Sunday. The 6-year-old child was on a bicycle in a residential neighborhood when the attack took place. According to reports, the dog, who was not restrained at the time, followed the child on the bike and ultimately attacked him. The child sustained a bite injury to his lower leg. He was taken to his grandmother’s house where he received medical care for his injury.

The police were called after the attack unfolded, and uniformed officers began trying to locate the canine. The dog was located not far from the child’s grandmother’s house. The dog was viciously barking at the officers while sitting on it’s owner’s lawn. No one was home at the residence, and the dog was not restrained in any way. The officers determined that the dog was a danger to the welfare of the neighborhood residents, and therefore chose to shoot and kill it.

The dog’s owner returned home later that day and learned of his dog’s fate. He stated that he understood why his dog had to be killed, but he was also saddened by the situation. The young child is expected to make a full recovery from the attack.

Children run a high risk of being attacked by a dog due to their small stature and natural inclination to reach out to animals. If your child was attacked by someone else’s canine, you should contact an experienced dog bite injury lawyer of Ravid & Associates, P.C., by calling 877-738-2483 today.
