There are several different reasons why an otherwise friendly animal can turn defensive and bite a bystander, child or even an owner.
- The dog is protecting the property where it lives or its owner. Most people who own animals will tell you dogs become attached to the people who feed and care for them and entering someone’s property unannounced can set off this instinct in a dog. It’s always a good idea before you approach the property or dog owner to announce your presence and ask if it’s okay to proceed.
- A dog that is injured or sick is also more likely to bite than one that is healthy and young. Unfortunately, sometimes a person’s instinct is to reach out to help an animal they see in distress but this could very well lead to the dog lashing out in a defensive way.
- Dogs still maintain their prey instinct and riding a bicycle or running past one can trigger this. It’s especially important to tell small children not to race past or scream when they are around one of these animals.
- Dogs love to play and sometimes they can get over excited if they haven’t been properly trained and understand the boundaries of human interaction.
Regardless of the reason, our dog bite attorney Diamond Bar team is there to help you with any compensation you deserve if you’ve been bitten by one of these animals. It’s important to try to get as much information after the incident as possible including the owner’s name. It’s also critical to get any medical treatment you need right away and not delay on this important point that could otherwise hinder your case.
