Dogs may be the most popular pet in America. While dogs may be lovable, loyal, and even adorable, they can also be unpredictable. Animal bites are always a possibility if a dog feels threatened or irritated, even with normally docile pets. In Pennsylvania, however, dog owners who know their animals have a tendency toward aggression should be particularly vigilant.
A woman was recently attacked by a large pit bull. The animal allegedly chased the woman, biting her numerous times. Neighbors apparently tried to stop the dog, but to no avail. When the police arrived, the dog continued its attack even as the woman climbed onto the hood of the police car in an effort to escape. It was only after officers shot and killed the dog that it released the victim from its bite.
