We have seen in rare instances as well the intentional attack of citizens because dog owners unleashed their animal against another person.
There are several circumstances in which the owner of a dog may be held liable when someone is bitten. If the owner was aware that the dog has bitten someone in the past, has violated a leash law in the past, was negligent in handling the dog or intentionally caused the dog to bite or attack the victim, he/she must be held responsible. Some dog owners carelessly let a small child walk a large and powerful dog, and the animal is able to easily get away from the owner and attack another person or dog, resulting in injury. When a victim dies as the result of injuries or requires hospitalization, the owner may face prison time or felony charges.

These attacks will often times leave the victim with lacerations, missing areas of flesh, aggressive scratches to the victims front, back or extremities. Those breeds that are particularly vicious may leave victims with life-threatening or fatal injuries, and often timeâ€™s owners of these types of dogs train the animals to be more aggressive because of their societal view towards these animals.
