A dog in a Denton, Texas neighborhood attacked three kids earlier this month. The attacks occurred close to the intersection of Montecito Drive and Settlement Drive, where a large and aggressive Rottweiler mix scratched and bit the boys after it escaped from a fenced yard. Local authorities responded to a 911 call after two boys, ages 11 and 13 were bitten on the back of their legs.
The dog has since been placed under quarantine. Other dogs were involved, but did not bite anyone. One of the boys, who told police he was bitten on the leg, said he was on his way to a friend’s house when the dog suddenly attacked him. The other boy was bitten chased by the dog and bitten on the ankle, managing to climb atop a car to escape.
According to residents in the neighborhood, the dogs were kept in a house across the street and were sometimes seen roaming around the street before.
Victims of dog attacks need to know that they always have the option to file a dangerous dog report and file a personal injury claim, which could very well lead to a court hearing.
