- In dog Bites
The majority of severe dog bite attacks that occur each year in the United States have victims who are under the age of five. Virtually all Los Angeles personal injury lawyers would tell you this statistic is due to the fact that younger children often do not fully understand the situation and can be somewhat more trusting or act uneasy around dogs. It is very important to always make sure that parents supervise young children when they are around unfamiliar dogs and other animals.
Recently in the Los Angeles area, three pit bulls fatally attacked a two-year-old. The child ventured off into a garage where the dogs were, and the animals attacked. Law enforcement officials euthanized the three dogs involved in the mauling. Over the last few years, there have been multiple reports of pit bull attacks in the Southern California area, and multiple pit bull owners had to put down their dogs. Not all pit bulls are prone to attack, but these dogs are an aggressive breed. However, unlike many other states, California does not allow the banning of specific dog breeds.
