As Weather Warms Dog Bites Increase | New Hampshire
Each year as the weather warms, a disturbing trend emerges; an increase in dog attacks. Historically, spring and summer are the most common seasons for dog bites. Animals are out more after the long winter and children, the most common victims of dog attacks, are often outside with them.
Recent dog attacks across the country remind us that dog's can and do attack. There are ways to try and prevent dog bites. Prevention tips focus on both dog owners and parents of children. Even if you do not have a dog, be sure that your kids know how to avoid and protect themselves in the event of a dog attack.
Did you know that the most common dog bite injuries affect the victims head, face and neck? These areas often require extensive reconstructive surgery and have an emotional affect on the victim.
