In 2016, Los Angeles took the prize for the city with the most dog bites cases on U.S. Postal Service carriers. That was a 43% increase from 2015 statistics, according to City Watch LA. The problem is rising, due to the fact, there are almost 30 Animal Control positions available. Of the 50 Animal Control Officers that are working 24/7 to try and control the stray dog population, LA’s urban population is rising as well.
Being attacked or bitten by a dog can be an extremely traumatic experience. Injuries from dog bites or attacks, as well as the mental anguish, can last a lifetime. It is most important for people to know that children are the most common dog bite victims due to their size. Being attacked by a dog can cause serious injuries that can lead to hospitalization. Most dog bites cause scarring, which can have an everlasting impact on the victims’ life.
