More often than not children are the most vulnerable and prone toward being bitten, with the majority of those bites occurring on the face. In addition, strays are not to blame. This assumption with regard to dog bites is unwarranted.
In fact, the vast majority of bites are caused by pet dogs and happen when people are engaged in social behavior in appropriate places. They typically occur close to the dog’s home (61% of bites) and injuries are largely friendly dogs known to the bitten person (77% of bites). Per year, almost $165 million is spent in the treatment of dog bites.
