Children and Dog Bite Injuries
Children are commonly victims of dog bites for several reasons:
- Unlike adults, children are more naïve about strange dogs and will be more likely to try to pet a dog, even if it is dangerous
- Children are smaller and often threatening causing to provoke dogs more often
- Children are more vulnerable in dog attacks and unable to protect themselves
