IDAHO - A FAMILY SUPPORTS A DANGEROUS DOG ACT AFTER THEIR 6-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER SUFFERS A HORRIFIC FACE INJURY FROM A DOG ATTACK





This summer, my 6 year old daughter was the victim of an unprovoked, brutal dog attack. The dog pinned her to the ground and bit her multiple times in a matter of seconds (in the presence of the dog's master). She suffered extreme facial damage and received hundreds and hundreds of stitches in her face along with weeks of other treatments to encourage the skin to heal. It was the first reported attack by this dog, so there were no consequences for the dog or the owner, but a lifetime of consequences for my daughter. As any parent would, we exhausted every avenue possible in hopes of getting the dog destroyed to prevent this from happening to anyone else. We ran into dead ends everywhere we turned. Within 3 weeks, the dog attacked another person and had to be shot and killed to save the victim's life.
Please consider signing this petition if you live in Idaho...it's very fair to animal lovers (I am one) and protects the public.This law (Bill No. 525 ) is well-written and gives discretion to the courts to make well-informed decisions about dangerous animals. This is a law we can all get behind to make pet owners far more conscientious about their responsibilities.
