Each year in San Antonio, Texas approximately 3,000 people report being attacked by a dog. Despite this number being so large, only 33 canines have been classified as dangerous in both 2011 and 2012. Residents in San Antonio have voiced concern over this low number, saying that the city of San Antonio should be doing more to keep these dangerous dogs off of the streets.
Dogs that attack humans can be labeled as dangerous, and dogs that attack other canines or animals can only be labeled as aggressive. In 2011 and 2012, 28 dogs were labeled as aggressive in San Antonio. One dog owner is speaking out about this small percentage, saying that more should be done to protect people, as well as other canines, from these types of dogs.
This San Antonio dog owner who is speaking out has been left with extensive medical bills after her dog was attacked for a second time by the dog that lives next door. The aggressive dog escaped from its yard, and brutally attacked the innocent animal who was unable to defend itself in the attack. The city reviewed her case, and determined that there wasn’t enough evidence to list the dog as aggressive.
