Dog Bites Affect More Than Just The Victim


In the west part of the Texan city – Houston, neighbors of a repeat offender feel the consequences when the “United States Postal Service has deemed a street too dangerous,” says khou.com.

During the month of September “Postal Service spokesperson, Dionne Montague, says, ‘a 72-year-old letter carrier was the victim of dog bites from two dogs as he returned to his truck.’”

Following the incident “the USPS suspended service to that home, and Houston’s animal control department quarantined the dogs for a period of 10 days.” Spokesperson Dionne Montague for the USPS told khou.com that upon the dogs’ return “the dogs attacked a second letter carrier after they “jumped a fence.”

Khou.com reports that service was then “suspended for the eight houses that surround the dog-owner and the official USPS position on the incidents are that ‘Once we know the area is safe to come back in, then we can resume delivery.’”

Advocacy for Los Angeles to Help Prevent Dog Bites

In effort to reduce costs, “Los Angeles Animal Services may be turned over to a humane organization,” says dailynews.com. Phyllis Daugherty disagrees with this methodology and cites incidents such as a resident receiving a “reported 69 dog bites,” and an attack in which “a gardener’s scalp and ear were ripped off by loose dogs.”

“This is not the time to disband L.A.’s animal services department, but to shift its emphasis to core issues,” reports dailynews.com.

Preventing Dog Bites Starts with Owner Education

Often, owners are more responsible than they may realize for allowing their dogs to establish bad habits. “Some owners mistakenly teach their dogs that biting is an acceptable form of play behavior,” says themorningsun.com.
