When ‘Man’s Best Friend’ Becomes ‘Vicious’When ‘Man’s Best Friend’ Becomes ‘Vicious’

The dogs of our childhood were poodles, cocker spaniels and collies. Somehow, they have evolved into pit bulls, rottweilers and Presa Canarios. It is thus not surprising that there have been many incidents in the news lately about brutal attacks by dogs. Recently, we were all shocked and saddened by the savage attack which resulted in the death of Diane Whipple in California. She was killed by a vicious dog described as a member of a breed known as Presa Canario, which had allegedly been bred and trained to kill. The dog was with its owner at the time of the attack. Although most incidents are not as horrific as this one, it is certainly timely to review a plaintiff’s recourse when injuries arise from attacks by dogs.
