Many times, pet attacks in the Allentown region seem to come from nowhere. The victims, and even animal owners, may be minding their own business when the pet bites, mauls or otherwise attacks. Liability cases involving unexpected animal bites and attacks have their own set of challenges, but what happens if the pet owner knows their animals are dangerous before they attack?
It is true that most animal bites or attacks involve dogs, but cats can attack, too. Fortunately, most of these attacks are minor and only result in a little discomfort. However, there are times when cat bites and cat scratches could be more serious than you may think.
There have been a couple of widely-reported cases of horrific dog maulings where the dogs killed either their owner or handler. The most grisly attack culminated in the dogs feeding off of their owner's remains. Law enforcement assured the public that they were euthanized.
