Nearly 4.7 million people are bitten by dogs each year according to the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control. Of the 4.7 million, only around 800,000 seek medical attention for their dog bite injuries with 386,000 people going to the emergency room for bites. Unfortunately, the victims of dog bites are usually small children because of their size and inability to protect themselves from an animal attack. Broken bones, punctured skin and facial injuries are all types of injuries that may occur from an animal attack. In extreme cases, victims may not survive the attack. It is reported that around fifteen to twenty people die each year from dog bite injuries.
