FAQ

What will happen to the dog or animal that attacked me?

The local animal control authorities will make this determination. The animal may be taken in for observation or testing. If there is no proof of rabies vaccination provided by the animal owners, the animal may need to be euthanized and autopsied to determine if it was rabid. If the animal has attacked before, it is very possible that it will be deemed a dangerous dog, which may result in a requirement that the animal always be muzzled, or it may be euthanized.
