Dog bites in Wisconsin and throughout the country can be catastrophic. A recent tragedy in another state claimed the life of one child and critically injured another. The children were mauled by two dogs as they walked to their school bus stop one morning. As a result of these animal bites, the owner of the dogs has been charged with involuntary manslaughter. The police also report that the man has also been charged with two counts of reckless conduct.
The 911 calls from the attack reveal the intensity of the situation. The dogs kept attacking the children, despite the attempts to chase them away. Dispatchers gave instructions to help control the children's injuries, but the dogs had not been captured and were running free.
