Today's tip: Dog bites can be a big problem, especially if you don't want a lawsuit on your hands! Click the link to learn what you can do about it.
TAMPA – You'd like to think it would never happen to your dog. But dog attacks on humans happen more often than you think. Hundreds of times a year in Florida, the dog owners end up in court.
“It wouldn't occur to us to sue our neighbors over some minor injury. Now, things have changed,” said animal law expert mina morgan.
Not all dog attacks are minor. Some end up with severe injuries or even death. Dog attacks cost Florida pet owners more than $ 7 million a year, and they could even lead to jail time.
Morgan says the laws in Florida typically work against dog owners. In many states, dog owners are only liable if they know their dog is dangerous. That's not the case in Florida.
“Even if you have no idea your dog might behave dangerously, if your dog bites someone, you're going to be liable,” Morgan said.
Hillsborough County regularly holds an “animal court,” where a judge reviews cases and determines whether dog owners should receive penalties for negligence.
Recently, Roxanne Carlo of Lutz claimed her dog was chased and attacked by a dog owned by her neighbor, Dinah Bishop. Carlo said the dog attack caused her to fall and break her wrist. She asked the judge to fine Oliver's owner.
“This is a vicious dog. There is a problem. This could happen again,” Carlo said, in court.
Bishop argued her dog was not aggressively chasing Carlo's dog, and no actual bite took place. But the judge ruled against her. She was given a $ 500 fine and ordered to have her dog microchipped and receive training.
Perhaps more importantly, her dog was

I wasn’t trying to be clever, I was just pointing out that your comment had nothing to do with the current topic of disagreement. Plus, what the fuck are you talking about? I’m not Christian at all, I think the Bible is full of lies, but you are a complete dumbfuck for thinking that the dog was coerced into spending time with the kid. Do you even have a dog?
Do you even have eyes? Also, you’re a dumbfuck. If you want to call names then there you go. You’re a dumbfuck. Idiot. Moron. Happy now? Don’t answer, it was a rhetorical question. Looking at your comments I can imagine you would have missed that as well.
You’re arguing with people who think a book is right because the book said so…
Calling someone names does not make them a dumbfuck, claiming that a dog was coerced into spending time with a mentally disabled kid when it clearly wasn’t, does.
I’m not trying to argue, I’m just trying to make him depressed.
The boy keeps pushing the dog away, and all of the comments are replies to other comments. Oh Youtube.
I’m noticing you’re a bit dense. Feel free to have the last word. I’m done with you.
Both of you please shut the fuck up.
Okay I will have the last word. The reason I’m *tense is because I don’t like arguing with dumbasses. Oh, and just to be a dick and make sure that you stay true to your word, IF YOU RELPY THAT MEANS THAT YOU SUCK YOUR OWN COCK AT NIGHT WHILE CRYING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TROLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLO
I thought God made everything even mistakes.. not that this child is one for sure.
the boy was just a bit nervous of the dog at first . humans are animals also and have that basic instinct of flight or fight
I love this the dog shows that it cares like really humans are like animals
Makes me want to cry. Love this, love nature!
nope! he doesnt exist
i love dog
