Many Wisconsin residents own dogs or live near someone who does. For the majority of the time, the dogs do not pose a threat to anyone. However, when dogs exhibit aggressive behavior, animal bites may occur. An authority on dog bite statistics recently reported that almost 900 people go to the hospital daily after being bitten.
Animal shelter officials have offered advice on how best to avoid being a dog bite victim. It is important to note that any dog is capable of biting. Officials also stress that any size or breed of dog may bite.
