Most of the time, when we think about dogs, we think about man’s best friend. However, dog attacks do happen and can be quite serious. Sometimes a dog attacks even its owner who raised it. In fact, according to canine journal news, there are more dog related injuries than one might expect. In fact, just in the United States, there is an average of 4.7 million dog-bite incidents every year. Dog owners should always have dog insurance, which is generally homeowner’s insurance. But when that is not the case, the only option left for a victim of a dog bite is to sue for compensation for their injuries and the costs they might have incurred from the dog owner.
In north London, the owner of a Staffordshire Bull Terrier killed his own owner recently. The dog took his owner’s life by biting him in the neck. This happened while a BBC crew was working on an interview with the victim. The film staff called the ambulance immediately and they are assisting the police with an investigation regarding the inquiries related to the incident. At the moment of the attack, cameras were not rolling. The subject of the documentary has yet to be released. The dog was seized and kept in a kennel after the dog bite. The breed, Staffordshire Bull Terriers, is not considered to be dangerous; the dog is not on the list of banned breeds in the Dangerous Dogs Act.
The deceased owner was Mario Pervivoitos. People who knew him claimed he was a loving dog owner, who loved his dog more than himself. In fact, one of his neighbors described Mario and the relationship he had with his dog: “He loved his dog. His dog was his world. If he went out, you could hear the dog crying. He looked after his dog: if he didn’t have money he was always asking me for money to get it dog food, so it seems really strange.” Although Mario was somewhat notoriously known in the neighborhood because of his drug consumption, neighbors also described him as a smart boy with two masters degrees.
