A dog bite is a serious issue and can lead to medical difficulties or even death. This spring, a young Wisconsin boy suffered a dog bite which led to horrible injuries. In a separate incident, a couple was walking on a trail when they were attacked by a dog. Both the man and woman were injured in the attack. In the case of the young boy, he suffered serious injuries that led to missed school and required medical care.
Wisconsin officials warn that dog bites could become more common when the weather gets warmer and more people and animals are outside. The young boy was playing in the backyard when he attacked and bitten through his cheek. The wound required several stitches. This dog was later surrendered to the Humane Society where it was put down in order to test for rabies.
