Aurora Residents on Alert After 2 Dog Attacks
Aurora animal control officers are searching for three dogs that attacked two people last Thursday at Horseshoe Park. The dogs were described as pit bulls by the victims. The dogs attacked a woman walking her dog in the park. She sustained bite wounds to her arms and legs. Another attack occurred only 20 minutes earlier, when another woman had to fight off the same three dogs. Aurora Animal Control officers searched the park, but did not find the dogs. Pit bulls are a banned breed in Aurora, and if the dogs are caught and confirmed to be pit bulls, the owners could face criminal charges, as well as thousands of dollars in fines.
Until the dogs are caught, people should use a little extra caution when visiting Horseshoe. Identifying and avoiding aggressive dogs in public areas can help protect against a dog attack. Dog aggression is defined as behavior that is meant to intimidate or harm either a person or another animal. The following are some of the most common indicators that a dog is aggressive:
- baring teeth
It is important to remember that you should never run away from a dog displaying aggressive behavior. Running will only heighten the dog’s aggression. Instead, remain still and avoid direct eye contact with the dog. Knowing what to do if a dog exhibits aggression towards you can help prevent a dog bite injury.
