Man’s best friend is often regarded as being loving and compassionate. However, it should never be forgotten that any animal has natural tendencies and can easily turn on even it’s closest companions as a result of instinct. It is because of this that dog attacks happen so frequently and leave victim’s seriously injured.
TEXAS LEADING IN DOG ATTACKS
While domesticated dogs as pets can be easily trained and seem very sweet and approachable, this doesn’t mean that accidents can not happen and an untrained or unresponsive dog turns on a human. In a recent study, Houston was named number 1 in the nation for dog attacks that claim postal workers as victims. These bites and bruises left on the postal workers can attest to the seriousness of the situation.
It is always important to practice caution when interacting with a dog that you are unfamiliar. Any dog is capable of being docile one minute then violently aggressive the next. All it takes is too quick a movement or an offsetting smell and a dog will quickly lunge at a nearby person and dig their teeth in.
Dog bites can be very serious and attacks have been known to turn deadly, especially for younger children. Because many dogs are larger than children and posess serious power in their bites and pounces, a small child could easily be overpowered by an angry dog. These bites require immediate medical attention to both sew up incisions as well as often times pre-emptively treat for rabies.
