Dog Attack in Bushwick Leaves Man Scarred

A violent dog attack in New York City left a man with serious injuries late last month. Police responded to a distress call from an apartment in Bushwick were they found a 50-year-old man being attacked by two pit bull dogs. The officers couldn't pull the dogs off the man and were forced to euthanize both of them on the scene.

The victim, identified by the press as Paul Davis, was rushed to Kings County Hospital with severe lacerations on his arms and legs. He is expected to recover but will be left with permanent scarring and possible nerve damage after the vicious mauling he underwent.

The dogs were reportedly owned by 26-year-old Devon Dixon, the victim's roommate. Dixon told the press that he "rescued" the dogs from a neighbor's yard in which they had been tied up for an undisclosed amount of time. The frightening dog attack in Bushwick happened while Dixon was hosting a party in the apartment building but there's no word on what set the two animals off.

Serious dog attacks in New York City are becoming more common as people take in large breed dogs such pit bulls and Rottweilers. While any dog has the potential to bite unsuspecting victims, these large breeds can do a tremendous amount of damage in a short amount of time because their bite is so powerful.

Dog attacks in New York City are legally the responsibility of the animal's owner. They have a duty to restrain these animals and keep pedestrians, visitors, and children safe from harm. They can also face civil lawsuits seeking compensation for the injuries victims suffer. Such settlements and awards are for pain and suffering, medical expenses, time off from work, and other out of pocket expenses.
