21st-May-2009 09:12 am - UK and Australian dog bites
Mina - awesome
Date: May 2009

Funny - the suck
Date: May 2009
Location: High Point, North Carolina
Victim: adult male, adult female
Breed: Mixed breed, two dogs
Severity: Several bites at Level 3
Circumstances: The two dogs were mating, tied. When this happens, your best course of happen is to wait until the dogs are finished copulating and address the situation then. Instead, these two geniuses tried to separate the dogs which is both painful and obviously dangerous. I like the wording used by the report - the dogs became "irritated" and attacked the two people. Deservedly, I'd say.

10th-May-2009 05:38 pm - New Zealand dogs maul man
Mina - awesome
Date: May 2009
Location: New Zealand
Victim: adult male
Breed: Cane Corso or mastiff mix, two dogs
Severity: Level 5
Circumstance: Dogs running loose, attack man near his home. The dogs are normally chained, as evidenced by the long, thick chain attached to a metal bar that is shown in the picture (and was used to try and stop the attack). A passer-by was able to kick one dog away but the other wouldn't let go. He beat the dog with the metal bar attached to the dog's chain.

10th-May-2009 10:25 am - Girl bitten on face by tethered dog
Mina - awesome
Date: May 2009
Location: Rowan County, North Carolina
Victim: 3-yr-old female
Breed: Unknown, two dogs, a Rottweiler and Lab were chained in the backyard
Severity : Level 4 bite to face, Level 2-3 bite on arm
Circumstances: This story bothers me. The two dogs were either kenneled or tethered. These appeared to have been resident dogs more than family pets, part of the pack. The Rottweiler was 10, which is pretty old for such a big dog. My guess he wasn't on pain meds or arthritis treatment. The other dog was four. The child was alone with the dogs when the bite happened. Kids cannot be trusted to be around animals alone. They just cannot. It is asking way too much of the child and even more of the dog. Both dogs will most likely be killed. Sad story all around.

Something happened to the child Saturday, April 5, that changed the way she feels about dogs. The incident is causing other emotional repercussions.

Hanna was in the back yard of her Coolidge neighbor’s house when she was attacked by a border collie. She had gone next door where others had gathered around where a golf cart that had bogged down.

When the cart was free, Hanna and others were walking away. The girl was swinging her arms when the dog attacked, said her mother, Diane Cannon.

“She did not try to pet the dog,” Mrs. Cannon said.

Some 163 stitches were required at the Archbold Memorial Hospital emergency room to close bite wounds. One of the child’s teeth was chipped and another loosened during the attack.
