Recent Dog Bites Reported in the News

Published by slgmanage

Around the country, it seems like dog bites are more common than ever. Listed below are just a few cases of recent dog attacks that have led to injury.

Denver, CO: Kyle Dyer

In February, news anchor Kyle Dyer was hosting a news segment featuring Max, an Argentinian mastiff who was rescued from a frozen river. When Dyer leaned in to pet Max, he attacked her, biting off part of her upper lip. After two surgeries and 70 stitches, Dyer’s injuries have healed, though with permanent scarring, and she is back on the air. However, she now cautions even the biggest animal lovers to be careful around dogs.

Mount Vernon, WA: Karissa Bates

On her way home from school, Karissa Bates was attacked by five dogs that bit her multiple times and left her requiring 38 stitches. Though Karissa was crying for help, no one came to her assistance, and she had to walk the rest of the way home in severe pain. The incident is being investigated and criminal charges may be filed.

Henderson, NV: Jeremiah Eskew-Shahan

During a party celebrating his first birthday, Jeremiah was petting the family dog, a 120-pound mastiff mix and tried to pull himself into a standing position by tugging on the dog. In response, the dog grabbed the baby by the head and shook him several times. Though he was rushed to the hospital, Jeremiah tragically died.

Tampa, FL: Destiny McKenzie

Four-year-old Destiny was playing outside when she stumbled down some stairs on to a neighbor’s property—and in to the reach of the neighbor’s violent dog. Destiny was bitten on the face and required stitches. More troubling, however, is the fact that the dog had previously attacked multiple people, yet his owner had done little to prevent future attacks.

As these stories show, dog bites can happen to anyone, and the resulting injuries are very serious. If you or a loved one has been the victim of a dog attack in the Chicago area, call (773) 365-0040 to schedule an appointment with a dog bite attorney at Shea Law Group.
