A man who was attacked in his own backyard by an Akita has recently filed a personal injury suit. The man was playing catch with his daughter when two dogs entered his yard. Unprovoked, the dog bit the man’s hand, creating puncture wounds that required forty stitches and extensive rehabilitation. The dogs were neither fenced in nor put on a leash, which enabled them to roam the six miles from their home to the site of the dog bite.
In addition to recovering for his mental and physical recovery, the man hopes that the personal injury lawsuit will create awareness that owners of potentially dangerous dogs need to be responsible in preventing dog bites.
