Dogs are unpredictable creatures, and even though a dog has always been good-natured in the past, you just never know what is going to make them snap.
You may have heard about the Denver anchor woman who was bit by an 85-pound Argentine mastiff live on the air. Kyle Dyer of KUSA-TV was interviewing the dog’s owner, Michael Robinson, after the dog was rescued from an icy pond the day before. Kyle Dyer received 70 stitches while the dog went through a 10-day quarantine.
Michael Robinson told reporters that the dog may have been “spooked” by the lights. Perhaps the dog felt uncomfortable being in unfamiliar territory and having someone in its face. This story got national attention, and could serve as a reminder to not get too close to a dog that doesn’t know you regardless of how friendly it might appear.
At O’Bryan Law Firm we help victims of a dog bite accident receive compensation for any medical bills and physical or psychological scars that may occur. A dog owner has to be responsible for keeping their pet under control at all times.
