Woman Injured in Dog Attack at Buddy Holly Park in Lubbock, TX

Lubbock, TX -- September 27, 2022, a woman sustained injuries after an accident where multiple dogs attacked her near Buddy Holly Park.

Investigators said that the incident happened at around 7:30 a.m. in the Buddy Holly Park area off North University and Cesar Chavez Drive. It appears that several dogs attacked the woman before then leaving the scene. Animal control officials have since said they believe they've captured the animals in question.

The woman involved in the attack was said to have moderate injuries. Reports mention a dead body being found in the park, but they did not specify if that person was also involved in the dog attack. No further information is currently available.

Commentary on Dog Attack at Buddy Holly Park in Lubbock

With dog attacks, it's important to find out if the animals belong to someone and if there is a history of this sort of behavior. Texas has what's called a "One Bite Rule." Essentially, animals can be unpredictable. If an otherwise calm and friendly dog suddenly bites someone, that's not generally something someone can avoid.

After that, however, it's clear the dog has the capacity to be aggressive. Owners are then tasked with keeping them contained and under control to prevent future incidents. If they fail in this duty, they can be liable for harm caused by their animal. Whether or not that applies here, of course, is going to depend on more thorough investigations.
