Animal attacks can cause injuries, or worst, disturbance to one’s life. Aside from frequent dog attacks, other domestic animals and pets can cause injuries.
Examples include improperly confined large domestic animals, or livestock, that cause auto accidents after entering a roadway. They also include exotic animals that viciously attack a houseguest, pet birds with harmful claws, or slip-and-fall accidents that occur when an exotic pet surprises a guest with its sudden approach.
According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 800,000 Americans seek medical attention after dog or animal bites each year, some of which are fatal. Aside from injuries, these attacks can also cause psychological trauma.
