Here are some of the circumstances of the attacks on children:
- Child left unsupervised with the dog ("for just a moment" in most cases): 11/20
- Dog chained: 9/20 (we will talk more about this in a future post)
We must continue to urge parents never to leave a child unsupervised with a dog even for a moment.
We must continue to educate people on the danger of keeping a dog on a chain and to urge parents to teach children to keep away from chained dogs.
