A friendly get-together between two families in Wisconsin turned tragic Wednesday when a four-year-old girl was attacked and killed by the family dog. 7News is reporting that the girl and her family had visited the home and the dog many times before. The dog, a male boxer, and the girl were alone when the incident happened so no one knows what prompted the attack. A passing neighbor saw the attack from the road and alerted the family who then called 911. The girl was taken to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead. The dog was euthanized. According to Dogbitelaw.com, a recent study showed that 1,000 Americans are treated daily in emergency rooms as a result of dog bites. In 2007 there were 33 fatal dog attacks in the United States. Most dog bite victims who receive medical attention are children with facial injuries. A dog bite is often a traumatic and scary event—–especially for young children. A child’s small stature makes him especially vulnerable to head, neck and facial injuries including severe facial fractures, permanent scarring, nerve damage and life threatening head injuries. A large dog can easily break a child’s bones and their powerful jaws are capable of causing serious puncture wounds to the face, neck and head.
