While many advocates for pit bulls and other breeds considered dangerous, lament that public perception of the animals’ ferocity has less to do with the dog but instead how the animal has been treated, trained and raised. Unfortunately, a recent Las Vegas animal attack by a pit bull shows that those bit by any type of dog have injuries that need treatment, often hospitalization. With care of these injuries comes a multitude of bills – doctors’ bills, emergency room bills, prescription and over the counter medicine credit card charges and more. In addition, in the aftermath of a Las Vegas pit bull violence, the person bit may have lost a significant amount of pay from being out of work and may suffer severe emotional damage from the ferocity of the attack.
An early March Las Vegas dog bite incident injured two, when 60-year old Glen Coffer attempted to stop a fight between two dogs. As Mr. Coffer was trying to break off the fight, Daisy, a 6-year old pit bull turned to attack Mr. Coffer. 23-year old Gianna Silvagni was also injured in the attack when she tried to save Mr. Coffer from Daisy’s vicious attack.
