Nearly 4.7 million U.S. citizens are bitten by dogs each year according to The National Center for Injury Prevention and Control. Of that amount, only around 800,000 seek medical attention for their dog bite injuries, sending 386,000 people going to the emergency room for severe bites each year.
Sadly, the victims of dog bites are usually defenseless children. This is most likely because of a child’s small size and inability to properly protect themself from attack. Broken bones, punctured skin and facial injuries are common in incidences of animal attacks. Victims may not survive the attack in severe cases. It is recorded that around fifteen to twenty people die each year from dog bite injuries.
