Parents should always make sure that the pet they are getting would not threaten the safety of their young children or anyone living in the property. For those who own pit bulls and other dogs that are known to violently attack people, then, they must make sure that these dogs are safely kept in a place where they cannot attack people.
Recently, a 6-year-old girl, a 10-year-old boy, and their 28-year-old babysitter were attacked by two pit bulls owned by the girl’s parent in Stockton. The girl had broken her arm and had bites on parts of her body while the boy suffered dog bite on his hand and the babysitter, on her ankle.
When authorities arrived at the house, they found the pit bulls attacking other dogs surrounded by metal fence. They shot the pit bulls and had to euthanize the two dogs they attacked.
Accidents like this will traumatize the children and result to damages and fines that the owner would have to pay. To avoid such things from happening, it would be best to keep the dogs safe and the children safer.
