2 Year Old Bitten in the face by Pit Bull
Just a day after I wrote about the deadlock in the Maryland General Assembly over aggressive dog legislation, comes a report in the Baltimore Sun about a toddler bitten in the face by a Pit Bull. The dog was taken by Baltimore County Animal Control, who will determine with the health department and the police department whether the animal should be put down. They are also deciding whether charges will be filed against the owner of the dog. I did see a report on a news channel last night that the dog was, in fact, a Pit Bull MIX which could change things dramatically under Maryland’s Strict Liability law. If you own a Pit Bull or have a mixed breed that includes Pit Bull, you really need to think about getting dog bite insurance.
