Commentary on Shelly Engel Dog Attack in Burkeville

What stands out in some reports is that the community has complained about these dogs in the past. This could be relevant specifically in getting someone help after a dog bite incident, but it depends on the exact history of the dog or dogs in question. Generally speaking, if the dog has bitten people before, the owner would have ample knowledge the dog posed a threat to others. As such, allowing them to bite others would be foreseeable, and therefore they could be liable for the resulting injuries. These dogs may have caused concerns for the community, but have there been incidents like this in the past? I'd say it's likely worth further consideration.
