Dog Bite Update

I posted a couple days ago about a 3-year-old Milwaukee boy who was bit by a bull dog.  According to other news stories I’ve read his nose and part of his lip were bit off.  He was rushed to Children’s Hospital for over 4 hours of surgery.

Here is a link to a story from Fox 6 Milwaukee about the dog bite.

Family’s Two Pitbulls Kill Grandpa

It happened in Rubidoux, California (near Los Angeles).   I haven’t seen much reported other than the grandfather stepped outside to smoke a cigarette when he was attacked.  There was one family member at the house but this person could not stop the two pitbulls.   The man died before paramedics could help.

All I can say is, wow.   That is a tragic story.

West Allis, WI: Vicious Dogs Banned?

Considering what I’ve written about in the past I don’t know how I CAN’T write about the saga of the Pit Bull ban in West Allis. 

As you’ve probably read on the AP Wire the City President exercised his first veto on a proposal to ban Pit Bulls in West Allis (it banned any new pit bulls but allowed current Pit Bulls to stay).  The West Allis Common Council voted for the ban on December 2nd.  The ban would have been the first of its kind in the Milwaukee area.

Because of the veto the Common Council is considering other options:

The Common Council is considering a new ordinance to clamp down on dogs in the city considered vicious

A vote is supposed to occur very soon.  I’ll keep you updated on anything that I see in the news.

What to do: Dog Bite

I’ve written a lot about dog bites and my experience with litigating cases where pit bulls and other dogs have attacked and injured kids and adults.  

But, right after the dog attacks what are you to do?  I found this helpful check list written by a Doctor that is pretty easy to read.  Knowing what do to after a dog bite should take some of the stress out of the already very stressful situation.
