A dog that attacked a college student in Riverside on January 4 and threatened a woman last month will be put down, animal services officials said. According to a CBS Los Angeles news report, the student was walking near La Sierra University when a pit bull bit her legs. Her injuries were not considered life threatening. Riverside resident Barbara Hansen said the same pit bull charged her as she was walking home from church in December. She said she fell down and broke her arm as she tried to run away from the snarling dog.
Animal control officials tracked down the owner of the pit bull who agreed to give up the dog and have it euthanized. Officials said the problem was not the dog, but the owner who did not get it neutered. This causes dogs to get out and roam, they said. Hansen said she still feels fear as she is out in the neighborhood that other roaming dogs will attack her.
It is indeed fortunate that no one was seriously injured in this dog attack. We wish the injured student the very best for a quick and full recovery.

Speeding Vehicles Causes Fatal Car Accidents

These same statistics estimate the monetary costs of car accidents to be more than forty billion dollars a year. It is really a no-brainer when you think about it.
