What Happens When You Report A Dog Bite?

You should contact either the police so that they can do an investigation of the incident or your local Animal Control office so that they can then write a report and determine if this dog has bitten anyone in the past, if there’s been prior incidents with this dog owner and to determine if the dog is up-to-date on all of its vaccinations or if potentially the dog has rabies. Contacting the police or Animal Control is extremely important after a dog bite.
