Latest Dog Bite Statistics

HSCIC has announced that there has been a 7% increase in dog bites in the 12 months to January 2014. As ever 0-9 year olds were the most likely to be bitten and most injuries to adults were on the wrist or hand.

When will people learn to teach children to behave properly around dogs and not to leave them alone with a dog. When will adults for that matter learn how to approach dogs and stop sticking their hands into fights.

Depressing news and, as ever, it is the dogs that suffer most.
