It is the responsibility of each animal owner to ensure that their pets, livestock, and other animals do not present a danger to the public. If an animal owner fails in this duty and their animal attacks an innocent person, the owner can be held liable for any injuries suffered.

After your injuries are attended to, make sure you gather as much evidence as you can about the attack. Write down your recollections and be sure to get the contact information of any potential witnesses, including the owner of the animal. The more evidence you have, the better.
