Most of the bite incidents involve pets and occur in places where folks have gathered socially. Generally, the attack occurs close to the dog’s home or where the victim lives. Most often, the victim is bitten by a “friendly” dog known to him or her. No one can accurately predict what provokes a friendly dog to attack. Sometimes, the dog is in pain, sick, panicked, threatened, frightened, or any number of other factors. Small children will be the ones to unknowingly provoke a dog to attack. That is why parents and dog owners should never leave children unattended around dogs of any breed or size.
